I always suspected there was some form of necromancy going on. Is there a special demon who makes you bump into things?
There is certainly that "sweet spot" where the boat and rower(s) become one. I wasn't aware Friedrich knew anything about it. My esteem for the man grows.
I'm certain that this is true of Venetian rowing.
I asked the demon to move me too far one day. My lot was bum blisters and swelling wrists. "If it was the rowing that moves the ship" he might have said, "this is how you would feel".When making passage under oar I'm always looking to do a deal with the great forces of wind, tide and time.
