These are brilliant Most language teasers are so easy to write, but I can tell these take a lot of effort. Good work. For the record, I got them all, but I was guessing on #1, as I had never heard of a prow.

This is only the 2nd time I have done this the 1st I got none right today 2 out of 4 thanks I enjoyed it
Dec 20, 2013

I also guessed at the first one-glad you do these, Marc! They're always good-

I really enjoy your Eye Rhyme series Marc, and this one was no exception.
Like "eighsse", I guessed at GROW/PROW as I had never heard the term before, but grow was the only word I could get to fit.
I had to think a second on the "POWER ROWER" one. I coxswain, hardly the strongest rower on board.

What in the great, great world of sports is a prow?
Dec 20, 2013

I liked this one very much, it was fairly easy, but very clever.
Dec 20, 2016

Most were easy, but like others I do not know what prow is. It was fun to do, so thank you.
Dec 20, 2016
