Sometimes on a windy day, the hard-working crew members peddling Boston's Swan Boats need a bit of an assist.
That's when you'll see a first mate standing beside the captain with an oar in hand. That oar will be used to pole the boat around a turn when the wind is pushing it in the wrong direction.
As Henry Ford said, "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." Good job by the Swan Boat Crew!

While they say, "The Swan Boats are open every day, weather permitting. We cannot operate in rain, high winds or extreme heat," we can see that on windy days they do make an effort to keep their guests gliding along smoothly.
