9' pretty typical for a 13' boat. Your frame about 60" wide?

oars What size paddle?

I'm looking at oars for my NRS 13' Otter. This is a fishing set up. What size paddles are recommended 6" or 8" for 9' oars. I'm looking art some Carlisle's.

I run 8' oars with 7" mag blades on my 13' x 18.5" Maravia Esprite with a 60" frame 6" towers. I tried 9's before I got the 8's and the 9's where just too much for me. Good Luck.

Thanks. What about the choice of 6 1/2" or 8" blades with 9'ers.

For fishing, I'd probably go 6.5" blades. You can get a lot more beef behind the big blades, but a quicker cadence and smaller/easier corrections with the narrower blades.
