The next shot is the battle to find the best way to mount oars on a St Ayles Skiff was fired at Warnambool last Saturday.  See pics below for their solution, and for other ideas for tillers and stretchers/foot rests. 

See also the really simple oar solution employed on the captains gig Annie Baxter - a stick and some rope.  You row against the rope, and apparently it works very well - see them going at it using this 'technology' in Spanish rowing races: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kaWJN1JgE8
