I only expect my bowman to go down on one knee when he greets me. I know that on some boats the owner expects the bowman to go down on both knees to get a ride. That kind of behaviour can leave a bad taste in the crews mouth.

i think it depends on the type of sailing shoes the bow person is wearing. some are more slippery than others, so kneeling may be required.

what type of sailing shoes does this bow person wear?

If your bowman is wearing depends that could be the problem...............

They say pineapple juice can help with that.

But I have to question that.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, but there are stupid people that ask questions.

At the start what is the opinion on a bow person standing or kneeling? 

I have a recurring dream about Sophie Ciszek or Liz Wardley doing my bow. In which case I still wouldn't be able to tell you from my position of being wrapped around their ankle like an errant puppy making those stupid unintelligible grunting sounds one makes when they're feeling all warm and fuzzy.
