Last summer as we were pulling into the marina (under power, as there was not a lick of breeze) there was a fellow on a ~20' sloop
just off the end of the marina rowing his vessel towards his destination
, perhaps another 1.5nm. We offered him a tow, as our first guess was that his kicker
had failed; he politely explained that no, he just likes to row, and thank you, but he'd be fine. He'd attached flexible rope
oarlocks around the lower aft shrouds and looped them over the oars, which appeared to be the standard 7' wooden oars one sees on row boats. He was making decent progress, though he had very low freeboard which I think would be a necessity.
