Custom Rigging Setup

Purcerverance provides a custom rigging setup based on athlete measurements and power capacity to improve efficiency and performance. Dimensions are provided for footstop height and angle to maximize comfort and efficiency as well as span, inboard and outboard to address the length and load of your stroke. Your rigging should be individual for you and not taken from a rigging chart. Click on Additional Information to read more about the Custom Rigging process.
Purcerverance Boatfit, similar to the Bikefit process used in cycling, is a method of Custom Rigging using the individual’s body anthropometrics including, height, weight, limb lengths, flexibilities and rowing measurements (Fitdata) to determine boat, rigger and oar setup. To enhance the analysis of the Fitdata collected, a video of the individual rowing on an erg should be submitted along with the Custom Measurements Form. Once you register you will receive a blank Measurement Form and a Guide that will outline the measurements needed. The Custom Rigging Setup includes a copy of Mike's Rigging book (PDF) and a follow-up Boat Speed, Rigging & Technique Analysis. email Mike at purcerverance@gmail.com for more information.
