An oar is an implement used for water-borne propulsion. Oars have a flat blade at one end. The oarsmen grasp the oar at the other end.
What distinguishes ours from paddles is that paddles are held by the paddler, and are not connected with the vessel. Oars generally are connected to the vessel by means of rowlocks or holes which transmit the applied force to the boat. Oarsmen generally face the stern of the vessel, reach as far as they can towards the stern, and insert the blade of their oar in the water.As they lean back, towards the vessel's bow, the blade of their oars sweeps the water towards the stern, providing forward thrust. For thousands of years, vessels were powered either by sails or the mechanical work.
