How to join paddle and pole?
« on: May 30, 2013, 06:19:22 PM »
Hi all,

please an advice.

I need a fixed loop (diametar of rope: 4-8 mm), to join paddle and pole on boat (see pictures). I tried triple round with Zeppelin bend, but probably it can be used something better?
Sorry for not good English, and questionable terminology.

Thx in advance,
ZZ

You cannot use oar locks?

Hi zoranz,

Not much, only in Italian, and that only solves half of your problem, because these sources illustrate how to tie a oar in anticipation to combine it to the type of crutch that you show us, but unfortunately not illustrate how to tie then the result at this type of crutch, so as to prevent the oar deviates from it without impeding the free movement of the oar:

(scroll to"nodo stroppo")

("Stroppo per remo")

(the hand of the guy takes the place of the oar)

examples "in the wild" (? maybe!):

Hi zoranz,

The knot shown above by 75RR connects both the oar and the crutch (the small pole on the edge of the boat), "more or less"(well, in a different way, however, I think)as I think as the knot that you show in your first post.
The "nodo stroppo", if I understand correctly, the way I saw it,as was illustrated in the sources I've found ,is  something that is tied only around the oar (the part that is showed),  and then tied via an end around the crutch (but I did not find illustrations about how this is done!), in short: I have found a"traditional"  way about  tying the oar, but I still have the curiosity of how it is then "traditionally" linked to the oarlock: we say that we omit the principle  made ​​ by X1, ie that what is "traditionally" considered "sufficient", it is not said that it is the best solution(for example, I wonder if some lengthwise pull-hitch is better for the oar);then I am however curious as  how you combine this "stroppo per remo"to the type of "small pole" you have available in your boat (I wish you good excursions! )

                                                                                                                       Bye!
