Interesting fact from wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coxswain_(rowing)

Quote
A boat without a cox is known as a coxless or "straight" boat.

It's like a dream job for stroh.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coxswain_(rowing)

Quote
Coxes in either coxed pairs, fours, quads, eights, or octuples can use a Cox Box, most models of which show the rate in strokes per minute of the person sitting in the stroke seat (the seat at the rear of the boat, from whom the rate of strokes per minute and timing is taken)

There's a whole lot of other stuff that goes on in a boat that's probably not appropriate for this forum...
