Well since I am to late to this thread, I will post some useless knowledge anyway. If you are buying carlisle blades always buy 8" ones. If you want them narrow you can trim them with a circular saw.

Nice boat. Hard to go wrong with an AIRE. Hope your trip is awesome.

I am an American Whitewater member. One of 6300. There are an estimated 100000 paddlers in the U S. If you are not a member you should join. AW is fighting for our rivers everyday and could use some help.

Looks great. Is that the standard 11.5 ft puma? I've been wanting one for some time now.

Initially tried using 7' oars on a Super Puma, but didn't like them and bought extensions to make them 8', so go with that. I also prefer the bigger blades, but either would work.

You only notice when your Carlisle breaks and starts looking like the Tetons. Mags float too.
