I used to be able to row quite well, and I think it would be something that would not be forgotten.

It is not real difficult though sometimes difficult to row exactly where you want if you do not put the right pressure on one of the oars.

Quite enjoy rowing.

I have never been able to do this,but then I also have never been interested in doing it either! My dad was a realy good rower and was in his University Rowing team before he got married and came out to Australia. He is also a god swimmer,another thing I simply have never mastered no matter how many times I tried to learn!
I know I have done it successfully in the past but it's been a long time so I'm not sure if I could now.
Yes, although it took some time to master it
If I had too....it would take a bit of time to get the motion right.
It's not as easy as one would think....that much I do know.
I think I would be able to given I have done so in the past...but I don't think I'd be able to go very far. My upper body strength is lacking, lol.

I have never been in a row boat and have never tried to row. I don't know if I would master the skill or not.
Yes I can and I enjoy it

I guess I could if I tried.

I can confidently answer yes! I recently went kayaking, which was absolutely hilarious and realised rowing is easier than a lot of people think. I think it does require confidence, but once the sun is shining, you're with friends, and don't take it too seriously, then you'll be great. Or at least that's how I approached it.
I would not be confident now but have done so fairly successfully in the past...but I do remember the boat going around in circles for awhile!.

I used to row as a child and teenager so should not be a problem.
Yes. We have a canoe . This is so we can. go for gentle rows up the Hawksberry River. We have had the canoe for 12 months . To date, we have had 1 row.

Yes, no problem!
Learnt 'how to' on fishing trips!
simple answer- yes
Love this picture, which I presume is Grace Darling (brave woman)! Takes me back to my schooldays history.

As to the question - no, I wouldn't have a clue about rowing. I guess you would need pretty strong shoulders to do this though.
Oh! norma, exactly my thought! Grade IV Social Studies' book? Oh dear, fancy remembering that!

No I'm not. Quite apart from a lack of physical strength, I have a multitude of problems with my spine that would rule out any thought of rowing!
Lord no! These days I would be doing well to pull the skin off a rice pudding :((

Yes, when I was 8 years old, my dad would take me fishing and he taught me to row. I loved doing it and he got to fish in peace while I got us around the lake.

I tried to row once, across the narrow river from the in-laws house to the park opposite. I was hopeless, & my arms were aching. That was it, never tried again. My problem is, I give up to soon on everything I try to do! Just call me lazy!
