Raft frame oar stands

I'm looking to use a set like these.
Steel Oarlock Stands at NRSweb.com

But I want them taller than 6". And I was hoping not to pay a fortune. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks

We use these on our expedition frame: Rafting Supplies Oar Stand Riser, Raft Rowing Stand Shims.

They work great.

I've folded those over towing a flipped boat into an eddy in the Grand. They're pretty flimsy in my opinion. Replaced them with these, much better as they incorporate an extra bend giving them structural integrity. They also come with a riser model. The others would be fine on a fishing rig but I wouldn't trust them under real pressure.

Nice. 7.5"-8.5"-9.5" and powder-coated for only $15 more than the NRS model, plus you don't have to use riser blocks.

I've looked at those, bought a bunch of stuff from Cascade lately so I guess giving them more of my money is ok.

Or you could buy them directly from those who make them, avoid the middleman, and save $35...

On my expedition raft frame, I use two blocks on each side to raise my oarstands up to the correct height. Never have had any problems or issues. And I have put the boat upside down plenty of times (mostly while play boating on class 3 stuff)

Just make sure to use good stainless bolts and hardware!

"And I have put the boat upside down plenty of times" I'm offering free oaring lessons on the MFS this year, we want to keep that kitchen dry
