The Oars

Now... Oars... Many years ago, during the late 60's, I lived on a Lifeboat Hull, anchored in an arm of San Francisco Bay. I built a boat out of my head. Not having enough money for a motor, I rowed this boat to and fro, back and forth all along the water front.

I wanted the option of 'rowing' my current boat,  thus, another on-line contact.  This businessman is located in Canada on Vancouver Island... probably about as isolated as the Big Island, where we live, maybe, more-so.   These images don't really reflect the workmanship that went into these oars.  You should really go to his site to see the true quality, involved.  Island Oars in the name of the Outfit.

I had decided, beforehand to get two sets of oars as I have two daughters.  This provides the opportunity for everyone to be involved in the boat's operation.   I also spoke with the owner (a long distance, international call ~ my first!) and gained several  nuggets of additional information.  Two sets of oars... and three (3) stations!  This means that the second rowing position will have an option of being in, not one, but either of two additional stations.  Also, you will notice that the two sets of oars are of different lengths!
