This invention relates to oar-locks, and par
ticularly to oar-locks for noiseless operation by
inexperienced users.
In the use of ordinary oar-locks particularly
by inexperienced operators, the oar-locks fre
quently become separated from the oars ‘and
boats and are lost either overboard, or mislaid
elsewhere. Beginners also frequently lose con
trol of the oars when used with ordinary care
With these and other objects to be hereinafter
stated I1 have illustratively exempli?ed my in
vention by the accompanying drawing of which:

oar-lock in position on the gunwale of a boat,
