Picked up an Alaskan Jet Ranger 401 with a nice jet, but no oars . . . .
Even though the biggest draw for getting an AJR, is running upstream on the jet.
I'd still like to spend the return trip, drifting quietly downstream using oars.
AJR's come with built-in oarlocks, but, they sure look wide and tall!
They measure 67" wide and 11" above the 15" diameter side tubes of the raft.
What length oars are you using? What size blades are at the end of your oars?
How are they working out? Has anyone modified (shortened) the vertical mounts?
Did you choose the right size the first time, or would you swap 'em out, if you could?
Did you choose slightly shorter oars for use on narrow creeks, where AJR's excel?
Or slightly longer oars, for maximum control on wide waters?
Did other factor's affect your oar decision?
Thanx in advance for your help, Dave.
