RowKraft has been operating in the background of our lives for a number of years, as Tom developed, sourced, assembled and sold KraftLights while he worked full-time in the horticulture industry and was a high school head coach. After a couple of changes in job opportunities for both of us in the past six months we’re making the leap to All Rowing All The Time!
Last weekend was the final regatta for my novices and all of them won at least one medal! With 25 girls, it’s the largest novice squad I’ve coached. We had our last practice this week, mixing in with varsity rowers, and I was thrilled to see how well they fit in with the experienced girls. As they move on it will be fun to watch them as they continue to figure out how hard they can work.
A few months of hard work on this site was interrupted by the spring high school rowing season. Now that it has ended, our web designer, Linette of Invisible Engines, (as well as another web designer Tom met in a bar in Chicago!) urged us to stop tinkering and just get it up and running, so here we are with the new RowKraft website!
In addition to our own Beacon navigation lights, we’re offering products to make life easier for the rowing community. We began with Stazo’s SmartLock, the best outboard motor lock we’ve found, and then added Mustang Survival PFD’s and some handy accessories from Nite-Ize. We’ll continue to search out useful tools and fun accessories. Let us know if there’s something you’d like to see us carry.
