an student engineering project to adjust gearing on the fly. A certain amount of journalistic interpretation is needed, but it looks fun.

Quite a lot of interpretation- "more or less oar is in the water...".

I remember hearing something about some sort of spring system that would give rowers a couple of extra cm of outboard at the touch of a button- but it couldn't be reset on the water, and proved to be impractical.

It will never work. Why? Because anyone who says he is on the "crew team" will complicate his project due to a penchant for redundancy.
