Full digression: what's up with all the thongs? And yeah, that's hair ball....

2nd digession; Who's gonna be the first raft manufacturer to put their name on the bottom of a boat?

My guess will be a cat boat, likely it'll say "legend"

Oh yeah and finally, those all looked to be composite oars... a million fiberglass boats can't be wrong, I'd go composite, a lot more flex prior to failure

Did not know about this site thanks! We are a part of the fire department but I am A NJ EMT so Ill see what I can get on there

The surf boats we use are different than that video. They can perform longer rescues quicker than a swimmer can depending on the conditions. With two people pulling the boat can move very quickly. Lifeguard racing is a very big thing with the local beach patrols for decades. Great for working out, or surfing the waves in, or doing local races. You can either row singles or doubles. The oars come in at 9ft for bow and 8'6" for stern. Im putting some links in here, let me know if you have any questions!
Races vary from 1/4 mile rescue races to 17mile long distance



Surfing the waves or "shooting c's"

That is awesome! I would definitely consider fiberglass oars, such as cataracts. They are going to flex and perform much better than Carlisles. Thanks for the videos.

Sorry if this isn't allowed but I am just looking for some information on the carlisle oars. They made a older style from what I understand to be the best. They were 9' with the plastic covering and very strong for the rowing we do.
Now all the beach patrol can buy is the new economy style that are just aluminum and they are very weak, the oar and blades bend very easy. From what i found online is you can buy the carlisle heavy duty shafts that have the plastic covering on them. Then you can also buy blades for them. How do these hold up compared to the older style I'm talking about or are they the same.
Does anyone have any info on these. They come to about 350$ which i will pay if they are what I think they are.
Thank You for the help!
Hunter
If you are needing quality oars, please feel free to reach out to me directly at 970-208-4643. I represent Sawyer and can set you up for a Pro Purchase or you can go to:

Sawyer Pro Purchase Program

More of an fyi, but we have outfitted many lifeguards boats all over the world and could get you guys set up very easily.

Thanks,
Aaron Stone
