Thucydides calls ships this: not those which are altogether unable to sail, but those in a non-sailing condition because they lack a full complement [of men].[1]

Aplousteras: Thoukudidês legei nêas, ou tas aplous pantelôs, alla tas dia plêrômatos endeian aploous histamenas.
From a scholion on Thucydides 7.60.2, where a)plow/terai (sic) occurs (see web address 1) as a comparative of a)/ploos (cf. alpha 3233). Why the Suda converts the scholist's a)plowte/ras into a)plouste/ras is unclear.
[1] The full complement was c.200 men: J.S. Morrison and J.F. Coates, The Athenian Trireme (Cambridge 1986) 107-8.
