What would it be like to navigate a rowboat through a lake of mercury? What about bromine? Liquid gallium? Liquid tungsten? Liquid nitrogen? Liquid helium?
Let's take these one at a time.
Bromine and mercury are the only known pure elements that are liquid at room temperature.
Rowing a boat on a sea of mercury just might be possible.
Mercury is so dense that steel ball bearings float on the surface. Your boat would be so buoyant that you'd barely make a dent in the mercury, and you'd have to lean your weight into the paddle to get the end of it below the surface.
In the end, it certainly wouldn't be easy, and you wouldn't be able to move fast. But you could probably row a little bit.
You should probably avoid splash fights.
