OAR COMMANDS

STAND BY THE OARS:  Each crewmember clears oar, ships rowlock, places blade flat on gunwale forward, inboard of person in front of them.

SHOVE OFF: Inboard bowman pushes off using boathook. When ordered, bowman releases sea painter.

OUT OARS: Place oars in rowlocks directly from the boated position or from “Stand By The Oars” position. Oars horizontal, at right angles to keel, blades flat.

STAND BY TO GIVE WAY: Hold oar horizontally, blades perpendicular, with the wrists straight and arms extended full length; leans forward until knuckles almost touch the back of the person in front.

GIVE WAY TOGETHER: Blades of oars are swung forward and dipped into the water. At the command, “Together”, the stroke is started. At the end of the stroke, blades are feathered, swung forward, and another stroke is started.

HOLD WATER: Complete the stroke, stop rowing, drop blade into water vertically, and gradually swing to a position at right angles to the keel, taking care not to overstress rowlock.

PORT (STARBOARD) HOLD WATER: Used to turn boat more quickly. Ordered side completes stroke and holds water, other side continues to row. With boat stopped can be used with “Give Way” command to opposite side to turn boat while gathering minimal headway.

STERN ALL: When rowing ahead, complete the stroke, and then commence to backwater, gradually increasing the depth of the blades.

BACK WATER: Row in the astern direction

OARS: Complete the stroke, stop rowing, and bring the oars horizontal, at right angles to the keel, with the blades held flat.

TRAIL OARS: Complete stroke and carefully allow oar to trail alongside, fore and aft.

BANK OARS: Given from the “Oars” position. Allows oarsmen to rest when laying to. Oars drawn through the rowlock and rested on opposite gunwale

IN BOWS: The bowmen complete the stroke, swing their oars forward, and boat them. They then stand by with boat hooks to fend off or receive a line.

WAY ENOUGH: Given when approaching a landing. Complete stroke, toss oars to about 45 degrees and boat the oars, forward oars first, unship the rowlocks

BOAT THE OARS: From “Oars” or “Toss Oars”, place the oars in the boat on side thwart, blades forward.
