makin' oar tethers
I've seen lots of versions of oar tethers/keepers out there, and I'm pretty sure a simple small diameter cord tied to the oarlock with a perfect diameter loop (big enough to slide, small enough to not slip over the oar ring) would work. NRS makes fancy ones, but I know OARS-Dories and a lot of private boaters run with parachute cord-type ones. Any problems with those being a hassle removing/putting on? Anyone have suggestions?
