Oars & Locks
Boat Oars and Oarlocks
Many boaters also have rowboats to get to and from their primary craft that is moored offshore. These boats require maintenance, too. Over time the hardware on a rowboat can pit and corrode. Working parts such as oars can crack, be damaged, delaminate, or just come to the end of their working lifespan. When it is time to repair or replace your boat oars and/or oarlocks, come to Wholesale Marine. We are fluent in all things boat and will be glad to assist you to buy just what you need to keep your workhorse rowboat in great working order.
We carry everything you’ll need to give your rowboat’s mechanicals a new lease on life from Caviness, Crooked Creek, Perko Marine, and Sea Dog Marine. If new boat oars are required, we recommend Crooked Creek’s Gray Polyurethane Oar which is available in several sizes, from 6-foot to 8-foot lengths. This laminated oar is lightweight but strong and durable, and features an epoxy-coated blade for long wear. Crooked Creek also makes a model that features comfort grips to prevent hand fatigue while rowing.
We Carry Everything to Keep Your Boat Ship Shape
When it’s the oar locks that need replacing, Sea Dog offers a Heavy-Duty Clamp on Oarlock to fit either ½” or 9/16” holes. Then all you need are a pair of Sea Dog Oarlock Bushings to reduce friction and Perko’s Oarlock Sockets to make your oar assembly work like new again.
Oarlock mounting options include top, angle, side, and edge mount. Top mount sockets offer a strong mount and attach to the top of the gunwale. Angle mount and side mount are attached to the side of the gunwale, and horn oarlocks allow you to remove the oar from the oarlock. If you have questions regarding which boat oars will provide your best options, give us a call at (877) 388-2628. We’re here Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM EST. Our team of boating enthusiasts will be glad to provide guidance.
