Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Cruising Oar Power Reply To: Oar Power



In my Wayfarer World I have fitted my oars by slinging them under the side benches (front and rear). To get them out I slide them half way forward and then to the rear over the hard stern box I have fitted. I cannot remember exactly how long they are but I am sure they are over 8 feet.

That said I have not used them yet, as for close in short manoeuvering I use a paddle and I do confess to having an engine – and yes it was amazing how many people on the Calshot rally wanted a tow!
