Fat Cat to Cutthroat Transformation
I bought a fat cat a few years ago. I'm going to get a Rowing frame for it, hence the cutthroat transformation, and have some questions.
After reading a gazillion other posts on this site, I've decided to get a custom Rowing frame that dissassembles for airline travel. I am considering a narrow frame, 18" between tubes. I don't plan on running in water more than class 3. Tubes are 12' long and 16" diameter.
I'd like oars that break down and are light for airline travel.
My questions are:. Do 7.5' oars seem about right?
Also, do I really need the polecat or cataract fullsize style whitewater oars? Or, considering I'm only running class 3, would smaller oars, like the Sawyer SST or cataract mini mags, suffice?
I thank you in advance for your help.
