Now I Can Row My Sea Sprite 23 on the Hudson

Pros

  • Solid, confidence-instilling construction

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Getting out of harbor the old-fashioned way

    Comments about Steel Oarlock Stands:

    No winds and my 4-hp outboard conked out on me, allowing the strong reversing currents of the Hudson to drag me for miles before I was rescued. I resolved never to be without power again. The next week these beautiful, heavy-duty NRS oarlock stands were installed as fittings for my equally beautiful and heavy-duty NRS oarlocks. Thanks, NRS! The Hudson will not have its way with me again!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was on schedule. Easy installation. Fittings showed great workmanship.

          Q:

          Do these have a bushing? Can they be used with 5/8" diameter oarlock pins?

            A:

            Be careful about using cheap, smaller-diameter oarlocks with these stands. In a fight with rocks and strong currents, the oarlock stand will win every time! These things are built like tanks and won't budge (a good thing). I too have tried using bushings to fit cheap, West Marine oarlocks and EVERY SINGLE OARLOCK BROKE WITHIN THE FIRST 10 MILES. We ended our trip using paddles instead of sweeps. (Fortunately, we were in Class III water; otherwise, if would have been a disaster.)
            My advice is to purchase 5/8" dia., forged oarlocks and fit them directly into the stands. Don't screw with bushings; yes, they'll fit cheaper oarlocks, but you'll either lose the bushings in the river and/or bust your cheapo oarlocks. IT'S NOT WORTH IT! Get the good stuff.

            There is no bushing, Josh. The sleeve that accepts the oarlock snugly fits 5/8" oarlock shafts.

            Good morning. I ordered bushings when I ordered these just to be on the safe side. And they don't have bushings in them but they are already at size for the atomic oarlock. They are a beast set of oar towers I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

            Mine did not come with a bushing. I'm using smaller oar locks now so I
            ordered bushings for them. They did fit the oar locks I had been using on a
            17'x54" Willie drift boat perfectly. (9' sawyer oars. 5/8" shaft).

            They do not have bushings and a standard 5/8 shaft does fit in the pin hole.

          Q:

          What angle does the pin sit at if using pins and clips. It looks like it is slanted much further than our other frame that has a similar set up.

            I have these on my cataraft. I’m using open oar locks not pins and clips. The height from the base of the oar stand straight up to the top of oar lock is 7”. I would say the angle s tilted approximately 20 degrees to the outside (from 90 degrees).

            Joni, the outer upright portion of the stand, the side with the tube that holds the pin or oarlock, is 65 degrees from the horizontal.

            A:

            Hey Joni: Assuming that 90 degrees would represent vertical the
            angle of the pin holder on the NRS Steel Oarlock Stand measures at 70
            degrees. I compared it to a DRE cast aluminum oarlock stand which
            measured at approximately 77 degrees. The DRE stand was more
            difficult to get an accurate measurement due to its construction. So
            I agree that the NRS stand is at a greater angle (more slant) than
            some other stands.

            They mount outward. Think about how the oar sits in the oarlock once
            the oarlock stand is mounted.

            You mount it so that it tilts outward.

            Outward!
            And set your ours (with stoppers so they are no closer than about three
            thumb widths apart at the closest point when they are both 90 degrees and
            horizontal.

            I am wondering why you ask?
            Look at the angle of the socket. If you mount it inward, it will angle the wrong way. Inward and there will be a big loss in leverage as the oar locks will move close to your hands.
            Something must have prompted the question. Did you have an unusual idea in mind?

            I mounted it outward, which certainly works.  I never considered inward, which I think would put the oarlock at an awkward angle.

            The oarlock stand mounts out. Slanted outward toward the water.  It makes it nice and wide for rowing and better balance on the oars.

            It mounts outward. Very sturdy, happy with the product. In use for 3 years now, no problems at all with it.
