Thread: Oar Length Question

  1. #1

    Default Oar Length Question

    I just picked up a used 12' jon boat with a 54" beam. What oar length should I get. I don't plan on getting a motor for it to just use in the local lakes. I tried my 9' drift boat oars on it today and they are obviously not right for this boat...

    A good oar length ratio is 1:2 in to out...that is, 1/3 of the oar should be inside the boat, 2/3 outside.

    7 1/2' might be a good start, depending on your body size and arm length.
