Welcome. Let's see if I can help you by answering a few questions new visitors usually have:
What is this site about?
It is all about helping you get the most out of your rowing equipment. I write articles, teach workshops, and coach coaches (and athletes) about rigging and rowing equipment. Possibly there is some information here for you.
How can you help me?
Simply, the information here is very easy to follow, even for the less technically-minded. You can apply much of it straight away to your own rowing, making it better than before. This might mean being a little faster, or a little less stressed, or save a little money, or even a little safer.
Where is your best info?
That is hard to say, since readers here are usually unique in what they want, or what problems they have to solve. Possibly a quick search will get you where you want to go (search box just a little bit below).
Do you offer services for further advice?
Yes, I often consult or do clinics on site. I discuss those below
Do you have a post on ________?
Perhaps! Use the search function in the sidebar to try and find a post the topic. If nothing relevant comes up, then submit a question and I possibly will write a post on it.
I'm New To Rowing! Help!

4. Rigging Book. Price = $27.00
If you're looking for very specific guidance on how to get the most out of your rowing and rigging you may want to try my book, The Nuts and Bolts Guide to Rigging. It has been the best selling book on rigging for years.
5. Let's Consult. Price = $97.00 US per hour
Talking through a problem (rigging, boat speed, what to buy, coaching jobs, etc.) can not only be enlightening, but also very productive in solving a problem. I've been consulting with rowers and coaches for years, often with great success.
Consults are usually 6o minutes, over the phone. Price is $97.00 US per hour, usually done over Skype.
If you are interested, just send me an email with a description of the problem and I will respond as to whether a consult would be the best step to take. Expert consultations can help lower your stress, ease your frustrations and make rowing more enjoyable - you might even decide you really love it. Just one consultation may save you time, effort, energy, money… and even help you win more often.

6. A Clinic = Price Varies
If you're interested in an engaging, clear, and practical clinic or workshop on rigging and rowing equipment you're in luck.
I write article but I also travel around the country offering rigging and rowing equipment clinics, workshops, consultation and coaching to individual athletes, coaches and teams, helping rowers get the most they can out of the sport.
You see, rigging mistakes can be expensive. They can cause injury, break equipment, waste money or make you lose races.
With over 100 rigging clinics under my belt and world-class experience, I have the expertise you need. A retired U.S. National Rowing Team boatman and ongoing primary educational consultant for USRowing, I offer the knowledge to get your speed up, your stress down, your safety on board and your mind in the Zone.
Using a simple, straightforward approach (and a good dose of humor), clinics and workshops help rowers and coaches navigate the mysteries and misunderstands of rowing equipment. You'll learn:
- How to maintain and adjust your gear, and why you should
- Ways to transport your gear to save yourself from headaches
- Discover the best rigging numbers for a great experience
- Learn how to determine your personal rigging numbers
- Reduce your rigging and rowing stress (you know you have it)
- Learn how to really enjoy the demanding, competitive sport of rowing
Just a beginner? A serious expert? Somewhere in between? No problem. I'm able to work with anyone who wants to love the sport more or get more out of it. And if you have a specific topic you'd like to hear about or work on, just ask. I can tailor clinics and consultations specifically for your needs.
