2:30 Phones in boats Rowing electronics were getting elderly at the club and so we reviewed what we needed. Alternatives considered were – apps which can be used in boats; Lowering the cost to membership of tracking simple measures like time, split and stroke rate.

04:15 A mount for the phone I used a Quad Lock mount phone case which includes the female mount. It came with three different lengths of velcro. I loop this around the wing rigger or the footstretcher in any boat. The Quad Lock I bought was a version for an arm band velcro strap – which is very long.

07:15 Different mounting solutions 3D printed mount that goes over a wing rigger. Has an NK mount on one end. The silhouette of the profile of the curve for the mount is unique to each wing rigger design. It isn’t a very snug fit because you need flex to get it on and off the wing rigger. The second one has a curve which allows a water bottle to sit on the far side of the rigger. This version has a Quad Lock mount instead of the NK mount. Thirdly a footstretcher metal bracket which slots into the saw tooth adjustment for your foot stretcher adjustment. It tightens with a screw knob and I chose a Quad Lock mount.
