    Default Inflatable boat oar setup

    I bought a 15' avon and I would like to see what kind of setups are out there for rowing/paddling. permanent and emergency type would be awesome. Anyone care to share pics/advice? thanks!

    Just a comment on rowing inflatables, if you have the slightest headwind, the wind is going to win out of your oars.

    I just have little dink 9' inflatable and use the factory paddles. Better yet is letting the kids opperate them

    I use a set of Carlisle raft oars on my inflatable. I often use the engine to run upriver and then float back down. Got the heavy duty oar locks from Alaska Series rafts.

    Oops, you are correct. I have a set of Carlisles as well and got the 2 mixed up. Been a long winter and I'm old, give an Old man a break.
