Hi Steve,

My arrangement has a pin on the transom (10mm threaded rod) with  
19mm diameter ball glued on the top (middle out of a 10mm spherical
bearing). The socket on the oar is a 19mm hole drilled in about 15mm.

The pin/ball could easily be fabricated if you have access to a lathe
or you could be ingenious with the middle of a track rod end out of a
car steering.

This system is very low friction, though it does take a few hours to
get the hang of how you stop it jumping off in rough water. Otherwise
you could try a rowlock, though I would recommend some leather to
reduce friction and wear.

Thank you Alastair, I remember your arrangement but couldn't picture the socket on the oar blade.
 This is for a 2 ton Cornish Crabber,


All the best,

Steve

Re: Yuloh

I started with a tufnol insert in the socket but that didn't last
long. My final evolution is to drill an oversized hole, fill it with
filled epoxy and drill the socket in the epoxy. Every couple of
years, as it wears, I roughen up the inside, plug with more epoxy and
drill a fresh hole.

If necessary lubricate the joint with candle wax as that won't pick
up sand.
