Trials of New Style Rowing Shell

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University crew has recently made one or two trials in the new square-sterned shell designed by C. H. Crane '94. Later on, time trials will be held and the new style shell will be compared with the old, in order to find out which is the faster. The new boat is about six feet shorter than the standard shells which have been used for the past 25 years, and draws almost an inch more water. The stern resembles the sterns of the swift motor-boats.

Mr. Crane, who is a member of the firm of Tams, Lemoyne, and Crane, of New York, has been remarkably successful as a designer of motor-boats; the "Dixie IV" which won the latest of the international races for power boats, was built after his model. He is now attempting to use in racing shells the lines which have proved so speedy in motor-boats.
