Riassunto: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1871 edition. Excerpt: ... will not be a single racing shell built for American waters to carry a coxswain. In regard to a race in which all other things are equal, and one crew carries a coxswain, and in the other the bow oarsman steers, "the result," says Com. Benj. F. Brady, "depends upon what kind of coxswain one crew has, and what kind of a bow-oarsman the other.' This is the whole thing in a nutshell, and should be taken into consideration, by those who imagine that the mere fact of a crew not carrying a coxswain will ensure them victory over another which employs one. What Americans claim is, that a bow-oarsman can, with sufficient practice, and there are scores who have it, do his work at the oar and steer the boat as well. This is denied by most Englishmen, who assert the impossibility of a man's "doing two things at one time," as a sufficient reason for understanding why one man cannot fill the two offices, of oarsman and steerer, while they are afraid to test their system with the American, by entering one of their boats with a "worse than useless" against an American boat steered by the bow oar. However, they will ultimately be obliged to adopt this system, as, although many of their oarsmen are obstinate and determined to frown down foreign "innovations," there are many others who are liberal-minded men, disposed to look favorably on anything likely to advance the cause. The eoxswainless boats are to be seen upon almost every boating course in America, and are doubtless familiar sights to every reader of this book. The bow-oarsman has his feet placed against a cross-piece in the bottom of the boat, to which are attached, one on each side, two wire lines, reaching aft through small "eyes" to the rudder, making a miniature "walking-beam" in the boat.
