sculling boat group test

Are strain guages easily available nowadays? I understand these used
to be used to check rowers but surely with impellers and speed coaches
this would be a useful guide as to boat speed. One would still use
control boats due to varying water and wind conditions but the
variability of the athletes motivation and ability to pull during
testing could be ironed out of any testing.
