Our most popular size, the NRS 6" Oar Mount comes stock on many of our raft and cataraft frames. Now in high-tech hot-forged aluminum for a stronger, lighter, sleeker mount.
  • Forging aligns the crystalline structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger oar mount.
  • This increased strength has allowed us to streamline the design, reducing the 6-inch Oar Mount's weight by 25% over the older model.
  • A tough nylon bushing allows the oarlock shank to rotate friction free.
  • You can easily adjust the oar mount's height by rotating it on the side rail.
  • Molded ridges on the gripping surface increase holding power on our 1 5/8"OD frame pipe.
  • Accepts 5/8" diameter oarlocks and pins.
  • A pair of oar mounts includes two U-bolts with nylon lock nuts and four washers.
  • Singles do not come with hardware. If you don't already have hardware, you'll need an NRS Frame U-bolt to attach the oar mount to an NRS frame.

  • NRS Frame 6" Oar Mount


    From the images, it appears that the base of the new forged 6" oar mount may be a little less wide than the older style. Is that correct? If so, what is the maximum width near the base? I have a narrow spot where I need to attach it to the frame, and the old style mount (which I have) is just a little too wide.

Comments about NRS Frame 6" Oar Mount:

No wear to oar pins; NRS advises replacement nylon inserts will be available for replacement in these new towers. Cool, polished, light-weight towers! Goodbye forever to pins and clips!
