Situated adjacent to the catapults, like a giant, rope-propelled see-saw, the swing boat up on Garden Ground Mountain repeatedly attracted Scouts and Venturers. The pull rope on each side allowed the riders to raise one another up and back as high as they wanted, and by rhythmically pulling on and releasing the rope, they could control their height and speed, back and forth.
