Hey folks, I'm going to put a frame on my 90's-era Puma. I'll be assembling a 48"Wx65"L frame, and probably will end up cutting the crossbars a bit shorter to end up around 45 or 46" wide.
Given that this is a narrow frame, I'm thinking about width when it comes to oar locks. @Shappattack put me onto rowframe, where I saw the MT 8x8 and MT 8x12 towers (each offers 8" and 12" of width from the frame, respectively). I'm leaning toward the 8's because 12 inches does seem like a heck of a lot of oar tower sticking off the side of the frame. Each model can be found here

What do you guys think?
