Duvall Y. Hecht (How can you NOT row for a coach with a name like that!)
1965 was the first year for the UCI crew.  We were all green and Coach Hecht didn’t want any of us putting our foot through a George Pocock shell the first week (or ANY week), so… enter the UCI rowing barge, on which we rowed for the first several weeks.  Coach Hecht figured out on which side of the boat (port or starboard) we rowed best and we learned how to get our oar in and out of the water without ‘catching a crab’.
