I took Dragon Analytics up on their offer to balance my dragon boat with their software package. Normally I would use a spreadsheet to get close to a balanced boat and then tweak it on the day. I was curious to see what DA would come back with.

Well, the resulting boat was similar in some ways but different in others. It had some people in different seating but it also did a much better job of having people on their preferred side. I also asked for another boat that was slightly nose heavy (I'm experimenting).

We tried the DA seating at training and saw some promising results, especially on the nose heavy boat. Well done Dragon Analytics. We dragon boaters need good quality information and tools. Keep it up.
