      A:

      I looked online but don't find specs on the Wynn oarlock. The shaft on this oar is 1 3/8".

      A:

      As long as your oarlock clamp is the right diameter, it should clamp on. The Carlisle oar is 1 3/8" diameter, so check to see if your clamp will tighten down to that diameter. If the clamp is a bit too big, you may be able to shim it with some strips of rubber or similar material.

    Q:

    Hello;
    I just bought a 14' Valco aluminum boat. It is 5'3" between oar locks. What length of oar would you recommend?

    Thank you for your help.

      A:

      Roger, with that width between oarlocks you're going to need 8'-9' oars. These Economy Oars only come in a maximum 7' length. Check out these two pages - http://www.nrs.com/frames/OarAccessories.asp - and - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/oarlength.asp - Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we'll help you get the right oars for your boat.

      A:

      If they are too short, the angle of oar entry is high and it requires you to lift your arms high to deliver the power; if they are too long, you have too much oar past the fulcrum point (the oar locks) and it requires you to pull harder. However, the sideboard height of your boat affects all of that. Assuming it is not an abnormally deep sidewall, an 8-9' oar should work well.

    Q:

    I want to fit a Puma raft with an oar rig. I'm not sure how to determine the oar size. I'm 6' 2" do I need the longer 7 foot oars or the shorter ones. Thanks.

      probably want to go with 8 foot oars. How long is raft?

      A:

      The problem with short oars is that they will be nearly vertical in the water just to be able to grab a bite, which makes for an inefficient stroke, and increases the likelihood of digging them into the bottom. I have 7' oars on an Aire inflatable canoe (which is narrower than a Puma) and they are almost too short for that boat. I would recommend an 8' or 9' oar for a Puma.

      You're getting some good advice from fellow customers. I'd just like to make sure you've noticed that these oars are great for lakes and gentle rivers but are not heavy-duty enough for whitewater. And I'll throw in my $0.02 worth on 7' oars.

      I could respond several pages on this but time doesn't permit.Summery Thoughts:
      - The Puma is an amazing boat.- With an oar frame I would't use oar unless used in flat water only.- These oars use a smaller oar lock.-7" is a good overall length for a puma- Try the 7' aluminum full size Carlisle oar and smaller replaceable blades.

      http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1300&pdeptid=982
      Or sleeve the small oar locks to 5/8" for standard frame
      And run the cataract mini-mag oars
      http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1399&pdeptid=1057
      I run 8.5,'10.5', 12" boats in up to class IV the mini- mag is the hot set up for the 10.5 and 12' Boats

      A:

      If you are in tight spaces go with the short oars. Blade size and length of oar are factors that will bear upon strength to row but longer will give better speed...I'm 6'2" myself...have fun going cordless, lol.

        Comments about Carlisle Economy Oar:

        I use these with an oar pin set up, they are quiet and work just as i thought they would. They are used on a 10.5 foor raft on class III and IV rivers. the raft is used a s support boat for kayak camping and the group has been pleased with the preformance. The only complaint is the grips are a little small. we fixed that by wrapping them in athletic tape.

        I rowed these oars for over two months straight. For eight to ten hours almost every day from late June to the first of September I rowed down the Mighty Mississippi River from His source at Lake Itasca to New Orleans, Louisiana. They performed flawlessly.
