Stuff em under your seat, just watch out, cause sometimes they fall out.

I know you asked about DYI options but I want you to know that I bought these oar rests,
Oar Blade Rests | Accessories for inflatable fishing boats and rafts by Outcast, and I never use them. In order to rest the blade without too great an angle and it falling out I have had to mount near the front of my frame. I then have a hard time seeing them and thus spend more time dicking around than what it is worth. I just tuck my handles under my side rails and try and forget about the $20 of potential beer money that I blew.

try a big chinese finger trap!!

so i gotta picture of how i do it on our custy boats... see the bright red camstrap covering the boats lettering just forward of center??
i have my spare on the right side; and just tuck my left oar into that strap.
it wouldn't stay there if the boat was rocking at all, but in the flats it works.
and it doesn't get wrapped up like it does in that damn chickenline.

probly only gonna work if you happen to be running a stern mount.
i haven't tried to line it up on a center mount yet, but maybe!!

Oar holders when not rowing

I bought the same oar blade rests as 40 did. I tried mounting them to the frame but I couldn't get them far forward enough on my frame. The oar wouldn't seat in the holder without help from a passenger. I finally got them to work when I mounted them on my chicken line instead of the frame. I was able to move them a foot further forward. I double wrapped the oar rests' webbing around the chicken line but they would slide back and forth to much. I solved that by "sewing" a zip tie through the webbing and cinching it as tight as I could to lock it in place. Now they don't move at all and they work great.

And here's one showing them in action.

I cinch them in place with a 2'strap and trailer them that way. It makes launching and rigging a breeze. We are on the water as fast as I can put on my vest and undo those two straps.

The super simple solution on a big oval is to have loops of paracord as long as your oar towers are tall tied to your frame on each side just aft of your seat. As you swing the blades to their resting spot, the handles come into position over their respective loops and you put 'em in, holding your oars at rest.

Catarafts with a forward rowing position come with the default oar rest between the ta-tas.
