I've always taken it to mean a combination of inserting the oars at the right depth and angle when pulling and bringing them back on the return stroke low and parallel with the water and with blades properly feathered, all as you say done with perfectly regular timing.

Once you've got past the 'catching lobsters' phase (as Dot put it), it seems to me that it's that return stroke that many otherwise-proficient rowers often don't master -- but that makes them look really professional when they do.
