At the start line

A standard dragon boat is a 40-foot “canoe” that has ten rows of two paddlers each (twenty total), a drummer and a steerer. The boat usually has scales on the side with a head and tail attached for races. Another smaller model, used less often, is designed for ten paddlers, a drummer (sometimes also a flag catcher), and a steerer.
