I've spoken with Steve at Shaw and Tenney about oars and he
has been very helpful.
The oarlocks on the boat are currently mounted on the inside of
the gunwale ,which is why the measurement from pin to pin was
so narrow, I will be mounting them on the outsied as he
suggested, giving it a more normal distance of 50" from pin to
he suggested the 8' oars ,flat blade so thats what i'm going with.
I weighed the old 7' oars that I've been struggling with ,they
weigh 6# each!!! I think Steve said the new one's will weigh
about 3# each,so that and the proper mounting of the oarlock on
the outside edge should make a big difference???
