Default Kanawha River Records

The Fish and I broke Lawson Hamilton's 1941 speed records for a 16' Weaver Skiff rowed on the Kanawha between the Capital Street Bridge and Port Amherst (Chuck Yeager Bridge), on a dead current, both up and back- exactly five miles each way. She steered and I rowed. I have the times recorded somewhere, but our average speed downbound was over 7 mph. Those records still stands.

Care to challenge?
