It depends on the tube size, frame width, tower location, etc. You're probably going to need two sets of oars, different lengths. LOTS of threads on oar length, search.

Ditto, but I have the Sawyers.

When my son started running the 14ft raft, I put 9.5 fters on it.

Are your towers the same distance apart, and comparable tube size? Just curious, how lucky you are! I have different oars for a 12.5' cat and 14' raft, and they really aren't that much different in size, but the config of towers is.
