To find the required length of a skiff or spoon oar together with the position of the button, this simple calculation can be used:
First find the outboard length of the oar by taking the beam of the boat (rowlock to rowlock), add 8.5'' and divide by 2, then multiply by 2.45.
The next step is to find the inboard length by taking the beam, divide by 2 and add 2.25''. This allow for an overlap for rowing hand over hand, but added to the outboard length, the length of the whole oar can be established as well as the button position.
