Question: My row boat is 4 feet between the oarlocks. What length oars should I buy?
Peter J.

Answer: There are a number different ways to determine the right length of oar for a given boat. The very best way is to test out oars on your boat. This gives you a feel for the boat/oar/human combination. Often this is not possible so here are ways to get the best length oar that you can then adjust the mounting to get things dialed in.

  1. Distance between the Oarlocks (in inches) divide by two then add 2. Multiply this by 25 then divide by 7. Pick the oar closest to that length. (You will need to convert to feet.)
  2. Distance between the Oarlocks (in inches) divide by two and subtract 2". Multiply by three to get an approximate oar length.
  3. Distance between the Oarlocks (in inches) divided by two then times by three and add 6" and select the closest oar length.
The results of these three methods will be:
  1. 48/2 = 24, 24+2 = 26, 26*25 = 650, 650/7 = 92.9, round and convert to feet) 93/12 = 7' 9" so Oar would be 7-1/2' or 8'
  2. 48/2 = 24, 24-2 = 22, 22*3 = 66, 66" (5' 6") so Oar would be a 5-1/2"
  3. 48/2 = 24, 24*3 = 72, 72+6 = 78, 78/12 = 6.5 so Oar would be 6-1/2'
As you see there is a two foot length range in these estimates. This is where personal preference comes in.

To make your choice remember that about 1/3 (or a little less) of the oar is in the boat and that the narrower your beam and the lower your freeboard the shorter you will want your oars to be. Oars that are too long get in the way of your rowing.
