Hi Guys,

I have had a few queries about the new Polo boat I am working on so I thought that I would post a few images. I paddled this initially on Wednesday and was impressed. First impressions are as follows: 

  • easiest turning polo boat I have ever paddled ( without resorting to a polo boat that is too small for me).
  • nose dips easily.
  • plenty on volume around the knees.
  • cockpit rim is terrible as it cuts thighs (not mine , but people with real thighs).... have work to do on this. 
  • whole seating and cockpit rim needs some work to get up to production stage. 
  • fast and easy acceleration, though will test further.

So I will attempt to play some games tomorrow in the prototype boat. Main interest is how the boat handles defensive work with the lower volumes in the nose and tail.
