How is everyone mounting their oars? I use the pins and clips, but have been told that's not the best way. I know it's a pain when an oar pops out but at least I have the saddle to hold the oar against the pin until I manage to reset the clip. I just came back from a trip on the Yampa in CO where I ran an 18 cat with Oar rights, I never poped an oar but there were no rocks due to high water.
I'll stick with the pins and clips on my 18 cat but I'm curious what the AK river runner perfer.
