Oar Locks


This section is for questions or discussions at least remotely associated with wooden boats. This is pretty remote -- we work on wood/canvas canoes and sometimes customers ask us to work on their other boats. This oar lock question pertains to a 1930's steel coast guard rescue boat.

The owners would like us to locate another pair of oar locks like the originals.

Can anyone help?

Linda and Dan,
As you undoubtedly know, WoodenBoat has some pretty active forums. I'll bet someone there could help.
