I think your forward-back motion is great, but oars would go in forward-down-back-up-forward ect. ect.

Looks great! A mast would be good though. And perhaps a cannon (doesn't have to be real), and a less blocky hull :-)

Change it so when one side of the paddles are towards the front the other side is at the back

That would just make it go in circles.

If you have enough pieces, you can replace the blue-7 slot connectors with black or white snowflakes. And then also replace the blue rods with more snowflakes (7 slot connectors).

That should make it more solid.

Thats all I can think of.
