Home made EMT stern frame advice

I want to build a stern frame for a 16 ft boat. Does any one have some pictures of a stern frame they have built.

The oar stands are the part I'm not sure about. I don't think I can bend a U by myself in the EMT.

Any advice I can get would be appreciated!

I don't have a stern frame, but I do have an EMT cat frame. We used 90* EMT elbows as oar towers. You can weld the elbows to a length of straight, then set proper angles when welding to other pieces. ***Mind the galvi coating***

Not a super detailed picture, but the idea can be seen.

Thanks - I assume those are the 90 degree angles you can buy in the store. What did you use for the bushing for the oar lock

They are pre-bent / store bought 90's, notched to fit with the straight piece.

The pin / oar lock hole uses a piece of 5/8" ID chromoly tubing. Drill both walls of the elbow, place the tubing through and weld in place.
