Pete's Dream

Notice the ropes tied to the oar to hold it in position.

The shield has it's center removed so the shield may be used as a brace to hold the oar in position.

The brown background is the ship cover. The ship cover is tied to the holes in the oar blades. Think of the ship cover as a large tarp that covers the entire ship. It keeps the deck dry and makes the ship more streamline.
