We have a small Avon RIB
, 4 years old, that came with what appear to be West Marine
adjustable aluminium oars (Watsonville as the only bit of the label remaining legible is the clue).
The 2 parts
of the oar are held together with a plastic insert fitting in the smaller tube and with two spring loaded "buttons" protruding through the larger tube. Te springs have corroded such that the parts
are no longer usable. The blades are held on with similar inserts.
The UK supplier of the RIB
was unable to advise on the parts. Zodiac
could not or would not identify the supplier.
are unable to identify the part, despite being supplied with a photograph (attached).
The only advice any of the above can give is to buy a new pair of oars.
Has anyone else had a similar experience and/or resolved it?
