Rigging
8/7/15

Here we are mostly interested in knowing basic rigging dimensions so we can distinguish riggers for Fours from riggers for Eights - a modest persuit.

Boat Dimensions
Hoh rigging
Double rigging
Single rigging
Cut Down the Oars Guy Harper
Richard Burnell on Rigging
Row2k - Basic Rigging

Sweeps
Overall oar length .............. 12'-6"
Outboard .......................... 8'-9"
Inboard ........................... 3'-9"
Span (Pin to boat centerline) ... 3'-3"

Modern sweeps tend to be a little shorter, about 375cm or 12'-4"

Sculls
Overall oar length .... 9'-7" or 9'-10"
Outboard ............................. 6'-11"
Inboard ............................... 2'-11"
Span (Pin to pin) ................... 5'-2"

Pins for quads and doubles are set a little closer to 60" or 61" so the inboard is a little less at about 2'-10".
