I wonder if they'd allow it...

RE: long boats in pools: Something most people probably don't consider is that being able to fit more WW boats in a pool than you could sea kayaks means that the pool rental fee gets split more ways! Which means either cheaper per-person fees or higher likelihood of getting enough people to commit to paying their share to reserve a pool session.

There is a pool in my town. Supposedly, there are lots of paddlers who roll. But trying to get enough people to commit to paying even $10 per hour to reserve the pool is like herding cats. I suspect that if it was a big WW boating area, I'd have no trouble getting reservations for weekly pool sessions. As it is now, I drive 50 miles each way, once a month, to attend a session elsewhere.

Have to admit, I do miss being able to drop in on a 4-hr pool session held every week, in a full-size Olympic pool, for a mere $9 for as much of that 4 hrs as I wanted.
