      would a Yulloh (sweep oar) work on that design?

      It's time to mount oarlocks on the AF4--as an emergency backup only--and I'm going to put oarlock sockets into the combing on the cockpit sides for standing rowing.  I like the look of angle mount sockets (http://www.duckworksbbs.com/hardware/oarlocks/sd580620/index.htm), but that would require that the sockets sit at a slight angle to rearward.  Were I to go with side mount sockets (http://www.duckworksbbs.com/hardware/oarlocks/sd580610/index.htm) I could fasten them to the combing closer to level (i.e. not run them parallel to the top face of the combing as the angle sockets would have to--of course this would break up the lines further, adding to my aesthetic preference for the angle sockets...).  In trying to pantomime the rowing motion with a slightly angled oarlock I don't think it will be a problem, but wanted to check if anyone had tried it and found a slight angle to be a problem.
