"I already knew that Resolute gets round the bends on the Charles better than [competitors]. I reckon the Resolute with the shark's fin rudder is around 3 seconds faster than any other shell on steering the bends alone! "-Adrian Ellison Olympic Gold Medal Winning Cox: 1984 Los Angeles with Sir Steven Redgrave
"There’s no question that they are the most durable long lasting racing shells built. Regarding the efficiency of the hull, race results speak for themselves. You can count on exactly the same construction and durability."-Steve Gladstone Head Coach Heavyweight Men: Yale University
