Is the stroke only as good as the worst rower?

How much motivation and change can a stroke execute in the shell during a race? Is he/she only as good as the worst rower?

If the "worst" can't follow the stroke, there will be a new "worst" in that seat with better skills than previous occupant. Presumably the worst in the boat is chosen from the best of a larger pool of talent. That's the ideal in training. The harsh reality of racing is compensating for weakness rather than revealing it. The pack is the strength of the wolf and the wolf the strength of the pack.
