Buying a raft for some remote float trips in Alaska. Got the frame figured out, Riverboat Works will make new center sections for my existing frame (for 14'4" Sotar).
The boat is in Alaska and I will pick it up on my way to NW Alaska in Aug to avoid spendy shipping charges. The issue remaining is what size oars to use.
I have 3 piece Sawyer Pole Cats for my 14' raft. Talked to Sawyer and they will make custom shorter mid sections so I can use the Pole Cats on the smaller rig.
Can't decide what the proper oar length would be for this boat. Interior (tube to tube) is 24", tubes are 19". Wondering what you guys/gals thought. Thanks for any comment.
