Zodiac Futura paddle size

Have been searching around trying to find out what paddles fit in the factory holders on the Futuras. looks like they need to be 53" long at least but the blade only can be 5" wide? Any ideas as to what kind will fit there?

If it's an F470, it just takes crappy wood oars.

I made new paddle holders in the original style and upgraded to a rafting set of paddles. Far superior to the crappy wooden single paddle my past boat came with.

Can't edit my previous post but here is a picture of the oar mounts. I remembered I had also cut them down a few inches to the desired length. With a good quality sewing machine, some material, and some glue the mounts are easy to make.
