Adding Oars and Oarlocks To Inflatable Boats

In this installment I’m addressing a common question I get here at the shop, “How do I add oarlocks to my boat?”.

The answer isn’t always simple but one simple and effective way is to:

  1. add a pair of scotty glue pads (which accepts the 241 base found on most of the Scotty line)
  2. add a set of rod holders
  3. remove rod holders leaving the 241 base installed
  4. add a set of oarlock posts
  5. add the Scotty Strong Back Oarlocks
  6. use the oars of choice
  7. done!

I’ve attached some photos of a Bombard C4R that has a few attachments on it for down riggers and rod holders etc.
