    Trojan, typical of the gigs that were used to row a pilot out to a ship approaching south west Cornwall to make landfall in the UK after a long voyage in the days of sail. This crew won't win the race to be first to get their pilot to the ship, they've only got 5 oarsmen instead of the normal 6, bowman on the port oar is missing
