bow and stern. This means two lights, one at each end of the boat, affixed to the hull, not to a rower.
* Slower launches and shells shall move to port and yell "Look Ahead" to overtaking launches and shells. Overtaking launches and shells shall stay to starboard.
* Novices are cautioned not to row when flow exceeds 8,000 cubic feet per second, as indicated on the USGS web site. Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service forecast for Schuylkill River
* All rowers should consider the flow when deciding whether or not to launch. Rowing is prohibited when flow exceeds 18,000 cubic feet per second.
