Gunwale/Oarlock
May 29, 2020 05:21PM
Planning on placement of oar lock blocks (single point, we're all the same size and I'm not selling this thing!) and gunwale installation over the weekend. Have reviewed previous forum posts. My plan...if you can call it that...is to place the oar locks at the dead middle, and later add the thwart seat for the rower in at the correct position for the oar locks. An alternative would be to cut the distance of "correctness" in half, and position the locks slightly forward, along with the seat, allowing for dead middle to be between the seat center and the locks. Wider beavertail, I'm thinking it won't matter much given the generally symmetric shape of the boat - but would love any input before I start drilling holes in expensive hardwood!!
