Yes, I have seen oars on the Numbers. Most people run paddle boats.

Although I have yet to run it myself, I have friends with oar rigs that run it all the time.

Nice shot Leland. Yeah, it wouldn't take much for a #s run to go south with an oar rig. I was very relieved when the dory run was complete. it did fill almost half way through right above 1.5. might be the only reason it went right through the meat of the hole at 1.5.

#4...This is the infamous runaway truck ramp. If you hit the hole at the end of the straight-a-way(right-of-center)...this often happens. You CAN punch it, but depending the level an oar frame might get swallowed. You don't see a lot of oar frames on the #'s, if too low -hard to manuver or get a purchase, if runnin high- hard to get momentum to punch big holes. Don't get me wrong it's possible, but if I'm going not going to kayak it, I would rather paddle boat it and stuff your friends into holes.
