It has just now occurred to me that banks of oars extended to either 
side of a penteconter (for example) may have a winglike appearance and 
movement when viewed from before or abaft and have plenty of textev that 
vessels equipped with ranks of oars and oarsmen are familiar sights in 
the Commonwealth.  This would even avoid violating the heraldric rule 
for wing placement in re volant.
