I think it probably would; however I think I'd have to remove the motor in order to get it to fit. Not something I want to have to do if I'm just trying to get ashore.—

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.
