Hello,
A past poster here with a new name, as i couldnt sign in. I was wondering if anyone has had experience rowing a gii? I imagine you could make some kin d of thwart to widen the distance between oars.
Thanks joe

Would be interesting, but you'd have to turn the seats around.

Some narrow rowboats and canoes use outriggers to get the oarlocks outboard.

Thanks for the responses. Sorry to take so long to thank you, i didnt have any answers for awhile and i guess i didn't think that I would get any and didnt return to this thread. I think next summer I will get an extension and try out rowing with an outrigger.

I may just use the Folbot paddles. I was looking at them and think i might take out the rivet that holds the blade on. Then i should be able to take two blades off and use the paddles as oars. I will have to test that they are strong enough, though.
