Rowing is flourishing and more accessible than ever with rowing clubs operating in every state across the country. This month in October, Racing Shell Covers thought what was a better way to reach out to rowers across the states? So we met with Associate Publisher, Chris Pratt, who helped guide and let us know about Rowing News Magazine. Last year they had reached over 85,000 rowing households in North America through their partnership with USRowing. Chris let us know they receive daily calls asking where boat covers can be purchased. Not knowing about Racing Shell Covers, many customers where pointed in another direction which did not turn out to be a positive experience. After hearing the unfortunate news Racing Shell Covers realized we need to let customers know about our Top Quality rowing covers. Within ONE WEEK! we sent Rowing News a cover for a 1x 1997 VanDusen Advantage Heavyweight. Everybody was very impressed with the turn around time and overall thoughts were top notch. Racing Shell Covers would like to thank Chip Davis, Publisher, of Rowing News for his wonderful review of our cover.
“The fit and finish are fantastic. The integrated red flag is a key feature. The contrasting color (yellow) ends are also key. The heavy-duty zipper, quilted lining, and tough exterior material are great, and in fact superior to my snowboard and ski travel bags. The sewing looks industrial-grade, and the fastex buckles are good cinch straps. The Velcro section for the wing is awesome for protecting and transporting the boat without having to take the wing off. They did a great job with our logo!” – Chip Davis
