pontoons for wherry

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Open-water rowing : One Thread

Has anyone designed a set of pontoons that could be attached to aluminim riggers for more stability. This would be great if one needed to let go of the oars to fish. Also, any ideas on entering a narrow,tippy rowing wherry from the beach. It's difficult to keep one hand on the oars (to keep them in the water for stability) and hop in the small sliding seat. All this done in 3 feet of water.

Thanks- John Mayfield
