Douglas oarlocks, was: Portland to the Pacific in a dory

Boat in the photo is my Cosine Wherry which I picked up on CL quite a few years ago - it was listed as a "Drift Boat" and had been modified with folding swivel seats. ;-)

 

I neglected to say that I made a flat side on the oar leathers that I built up for the Douglas oarlocks so they'd work better.  They came with hard white plastic sleeves / "leathers" but I hated the noise they made.
