Rowing an Aerotec?

I'd like to put captive rowlocks and oar holders on the Aerotec.

Has anyone else done this? How did you deal with the raised grab handle along the top of the tubes?

I did. I think downloaded some pictures her last year.......Don't remeber all the details. I glued the rowlock on a strongan patch(litle bigger then the rowlock). Then gleud the patch to the tube. Worked ok. If the pictures not here , can try to find them on the PC.

Does your safety line flange thing fold down, or is it rigid? If it does, I wouldn't worry about it. The oars will end up a bit off the tubes anyway, and they'll make their own space with respect to the flange.

If not, you'll need some system that positions the oars high enough to clear the grabline.


Accessories for inflatable boats. Oars, oarlocks and oar stoppers.

Here is a picture ..http://www.rib.net/forum/attachment....3&d=1278788853

The strongan patch was only partly on the tube, this to even the surface considering the rised grab handle. Used the oars when approaching difficult beaches and as a safety feature.

Totally different story than using a padle. The rowlock think was a BRIG spare part, thus not matching colors
