Pulling on the same oar

Posted by Fred on June 07, 2007

Does anyone know the meaning of the phrase "everyone pulling on the same oar"? The context that I've known it to be used is that everyone need to work together towards a common goal. The argument can be made is that in that context, if everyone pulled on the same oar you would go around is circles :)
