Any of you folks built sprint boats?

The DFW racing team builds there own sprint canoes, they are kinda neat.

Carbon fiber 20 feet long, 17 1/2 inches wide, with tiny rudders, some are asymetric, the paddler never switches sides.

They must work, we have several junior olympians in the club, and one that went to the Atlanta Olympics.

Oh BTW, they roll'em !!! yes rolling canoes!

I'm going to try racing them with my kayak, I'm sure I'll get my butt kicked but it will be fun anyways. :)
