    Default What length oars?

    I'm finally setting up an old never been in the water 12' Udisco round boat that was given to me(yeah I know it's a cheap boat but it's what I have for now). Can't remember for sure, but as I recall it's around 50" wide. For right now it will be used mostly on the Kenai.
    What length oar do folks recomend?

    I don't have much experience with round boats, but I'm thinking 9'ers would be plenty. Ask AR&K what they think. Tracy will point you in the right direction.

    Between 8'-9' depending on the height of your rowing station (seat, foot bar & oar stands) and personal preference. 8' is a tad short for me; 8.5 might work.
