  • Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter

    Q:

    I bent the shaft of one of my outfitter blades on the MFS, is there a way to straighten it again?

      A:

      I have straightened bent blades and oar shafts between two conveniently spaced tree trunks. I have gotten them almost perfect and then try to relegate them to the spare oar ranking.

      A:

      if the aluminum tubing is broken then no, you can't use it... but I've bent
      many Carlisle blades and then straightened and continued to use them... a
      vise is the best way, nice and slow, but I've had to hammer them flat(ish)
      with rocks on the riverbank mid-trip... always best to use it as a spare,
      it is going to be weaker, nothing you can do about that.

      Alumin ussally breaks if bent back. Best to buy a new one.

      A:

      I've done that before with a Carlisle blade. What I did was prop the handle end up on a rock and put my weight on the junction of the blade and shaft until it straightened. Depending on what degree the blade is bent, there has to be some fatigue to the metal spline in the blade, possibly weakening it. However, I never experienced a failure. Good Luck!

    Q:

    Trying to replace one blade to match others; Carlisle 5.5"W X 27.5"L yellow. Is such blade available?

      A:

      Renny, that blade is no longer made. Best I can suggest is trimming the 6 1/2" blade.

    Comments about Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter:

    A little on the heavy side, but that's what makes them so lovable. A low water trip on the Middle Fork Salmon last year bashed mine up pretty good, but by the end the only damage was a rounding of the corners from hitting so many rocks. We broke or bent several oars, but the Carlisle blades just wouldn't break.

      Comments about Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter:

      I've had several of these. Now setting up a second raft, with shorter oars. These have a simple, perhaps clunky-looking appearance. But they seem tough, except for an occasional scratch from rocks. I have yet to break one in any way. The fit is tight and secure once installed, but the lock button seems to hang up some times.
