I purchased an Alaskan Serise Raft this spring and Jim's info recomends 8.5 foot oars. I was wondering about the difference longer oars would make. Does it give more power? I can definently see how they could get in the way on smaller streams.
I can also see how too short of oars and the oars would be too high in the resting position. So, do the one foot extentions by Carlisle really make a difference if I am going to do some larger rivers?
Also, has anyone had any issues with two piece oars vs. single shafts?
Thanks in advance.
