sculling?

I made a long sweep that I used to row my 25 foot folkboat. I had a loop of line that would drop over the winch with the oar astern of the winch. I would row standing up and facing forward. I only used a single sweep out to one side of the boat and so would set the rudder to counter act the turning force of the sweep. If I wanted to change direction I would row faster or slower.
