Oars

Hey, I'm building an Westport nesting pram. I have a pair of oars that measure 2100mm. Can I use them? What difference will the extra length make? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Re: Oars

Welcome to the forum, Robert.

The oars you have are just a few inches longer than the recommended size, so they should be fine.  A little extra length could make them slightly more efficient to row, but a little harder to manoeuvre alongside jetties or a larger vessel.
