Maybe you aren't talking to the right people.=)
Say Plecoptera...What is the width of your frame (outside to outside of the metal tubes) and how long are your oars? Are you happy with the oar length? Thanks!
I believe its around 58" at the outside of the frame tubes. The oars are just 7' carlisle's that I have from a Bucks boat, and they are definitely a little too short . The ideal oar would be about 8'. I've got my eye on the small Lamaglass carbon oars or a set of Mini Mags.
Hummmmm.....OK. My frame will be 55" to the outside of the metal tubes and then I'll use the NRS oar stands..6" I imagine. I ordered the 7 1/2 Mini-mags from NRS. I'm afraid they may be a tad short but we'll see. Cataract will make me 8's if I want but I figured it would be easier to return the 7 1/2's (their longest standard size) if I need to. I like my oars about 10" apart at my hands.
Thanks for the info. Phil
