Re: "are the seamen equipped with oars?"

If oars can't move it, they are quite useless, I'd say.

That's why sailing ships used to be equipped with sweeps. Or they'd send out all the ship's boats and the poor sailors would have the backbreaking job of towing their ship out of trouble.

I wonder if a couple of RIBs could do that with a Type 23?
