Question

we have a fisher jon boat 13 feet 11 inches long. The top of the boat has rounded edges. Do they make an oarlock socket that can be used with that type of edge? We do not have a motor and would like to use it on our lake with oars.

Hi, I asked one of my counselors to go look at our row boats to answer this question. Hi Mary, I got out to the barn and looked at the oar locks closely and I believe they could be installed on a round rail it might just be trickier to do. Regards, Mary W.

Answer

My application of the oarlocks is on a canoe that I prefer to row rather than paddle. It has thin poly gunwales so I used an aluminum backing plate on the inside. This probably isn't pertinent to your installation. Because this canoe has a top rail on the gunwale for rigidity I needed to "build up" on the outside to overcome a 3/4 inch overhang. Also done with aluminum. I can't begin to tell you what options you might employ but I've found these oarlocks to lend themselves well to my own needs. As most of my use is on salt water I make sure to rinse them after use and they are holding up just fine. Good product. And to you good luck.

Answer

Mount the side plate oarlock sockets on a flat side of the edges, then use washers to lift the oar locks high enough for the oar to clear the top of the gunnel.

Answer

There needs to be a flat surface below the rounded edge to mount the sockets. The top edges of our jon boat are square but the oarlocks hold the oars above this edge.

Hello! It is easy to rig these to fit and stay tight by securing them with lock nuts, too! I row our boat every day, when we are at the lake and have not experience any problems. You will want your oars to fit securely so do not remove the insert. Hope this helps! Good luck!

I used them on aluminum with screws and lock nuts. I think it would depend on how you attach the sockets to the fiberglass.

I'm using them on a Coleman Scanoe that is a formed "plastic" boat. I made an over sized aluminum backing plate that distributes stress over a larger area and have rowed then in heavyish water in the Sea of Cortez and Bahia Concepceon with no problems. Good product. Have fun. JH

Answer

Not sure, I mounted them on an aluminum jon boat securing with pop rivets and they work great.

Both of these have the same profile, the chrome one is the zinc model with a chrome coating. It is difficult to spec which oarlock will best fit your application. First you would start with mounting style, hole placement, and then choose the finish that you prefer. There are many many options out there, so you can find the ones that will suit you the best.
