Part of my research on the build has taken me to the IHPVA Human Powered
Boats mailing list and I've found out a lot of useful information there.
But, I do sometimes get a bit frustrated with some of them when they don't
seem to get what I'm on about. I know a lot of the focus of HPB-ing is
towards racing, and there don't seem to be many people interested in
pleasure boating. That's the frustrating bit, because racing means stressing
things to the limit, and that means using high end components. So if you're on a
budget building interested in pottering along the canals it can be a bit
frustrating. Maybe I just need to explain myself better, maybe I just need
to climb that steep learning curve?
