Re: Portland to the Pacific in a dory

Interesting indeed!   One weird thing is that he's using Douglas oarlocks on round-sided leathers -- hence the clunk with every stroke.  I was given a set by a local rower and built up the leathers with more leather and PL Premium, and they work great with very little noise.  Not for rowing purists as  you can't easily rotate 'em for the Dory Stroke -- but like my Twin Graybeal, I'm a lazy guy....
