Keeps your oar blade in the right position for full-power strokes.
  • The spline of the Oar Right fits between the horns of an open oarlock to "lock" your oar blade in position for the most effective stroke.
  • You can still feather the oar blade by simply tugging the oar in so the spline of the Oar Right clears the oarlock horns.
  • For Carlisle and Cataract oars, use the Molded Oar Sleeve with the Oar Right for proper fit.
  • The Oar Right clamps securely to the Molded Oar Sleeve with two beefy stainless steel bolts. (Sleeves sold separately.)
  • Molded glass fill Nylon construction will give you years of troublefree service.
Note: Instructions that come with the Oar Rights say to put a screw (which is provided) through the tip of the spline into the oar shaft. This is only applicable if you're using it on a wooden oar. DO NOT do this on Carlisle or Cataract oars, it can damage the shafts.

Large: Adjusts from 2" to 2 1/4" (Carlisle & Cataraft Oars with Oar Sleeve)

Small: Adjusts from 1 3/8" to 1 5/8" (Bluewater Oars and Economy Oars using XS Oar Sleeve)
Material: Molded glass fill nylon
Weight: 12 oz (for size L pair)
Dimensions:
  • Large: Adjusts from 2" to 2 1/4" (Carlisle & Cataract Oars with Oar Sleeve)
  • Small: Adjusts from 1 3/8" to 1 5/8" (Bluewater Oars and Economy Oars using XS Oar Sleeve)

                  Oar Rights keep your oars perpendicular to the water so you get maximum leverage from each oar stroke. If you have never rowed a boat before Oar Rights make rowing much easier.

                        Great product, rugged product , good for beginners on the oars , bad if you have technical sections where turning the blade is required but drawing the shaft in a couple of inches to clear oar right is no big deal .. As stated before , I use these on my boats to teach beginners , but these are also great for longer trips to reduce fatigue .

                            These oar rights always keep the angle of the oar in the water correct, stops the oar at the correct arm row point, maintains a solid grip on the oar shaft, allows the shaft of the oar to rest in the oar locks unbound so if you hit rocks while drifting sideways the oar can slide in the oar lock instead of yanking the oar lock out of the mounting point. Very useful and well built.

                                Scott, if you have the full size Carlisle Oar, Item # 77256.01, you need the Large, and the Molded Oar Sleeve, # 77414.01. If you have the Carlisle Economy Oar, # 77255.01, you need the Small and the Small Oar Sleeve, # 77416.01.

                                Click the product description and it says large for Carlisle Oars. It also gives you some good mounting info like not to use the set screw unless you are putting them on wood oars.

                                Scott,
                                My oars are 2.25-inch Cataracts. I'm not sure of the diameter of your
                                Carlisles. I got the larger oar right and found I had to mount it on the
                                very end of the rope lashing to make it fit. In other words, the smaller
                                size would have worked for me if I needed to put it somewhere other than on
                                the lashing. On the lashing I have a 1/4-inch gap between the fittings but
                                off the lashing I'd have to trim or shim to get it tight. Fortunately it
                                works well where it sits. The other thing is that, being plastic, the oar
                                right slips on the carbon fiber oars unless you gasket it with something
                                like inner-tube material and clamp it down. Smooth to smooth doesn't hold.
                                I like the device but, like anything with boats, you've got to mess with it
                                to get it to do what you want. I rowed twelve river miles (dead slow
                                current all the way) on Saturday and without the oar rights would have been
                                much more fatigued.
                                Hope that helps.

                                I just ordered the standard oar rights - sleeves and alignment bushings -
                                and they work great. When I ordered them a few years ago I don't believe I
                                had a choice of different oar rights, so my decision was pretty simple.
                                Not sure this is much help, but wanted to respond with at least what I knew.

                                At 1 13/16" in diameter on the rubber sleeve, the Utility oar falls right smack in the gap between the two Oar Right sizes. You can squeeze the Small on the sleeve (it has some give) but you'll need longer stainless steel bolts.

                                I do not have any personal experience with the Sawyer Utility oars, but the Sawyer website has the following info.
