OOC: Ok, time for Jetfur to give Saltooth his due.
BIC: Jetfur herded his new "slaves" into the oardeck. "Alright. Two to a bench. Ignore those chains there, yew won't be wearing them." The rat noticed one extra crewbeast, a weasel, being the odd one out. He grinned and pulled out an old drum. "Here mate," he said. "Yew can beat the time out on the drum."
He turned to the rowers. "Here we go. My matey here will beat out the time. The faster the time, the faster you row." Beaconing to the weasel, the crewbeast started hitting the drum at a medium tune. The rowers starting pulling and the boat picked up some speed. Jetfur headed to the main deck, and moved to where the Captain was. "We're doing fine belowdecks, Cap'n. Tell me if you want more speed and I can get the rowers going twice as fast."
