Achilles Inflatable

I am trying to replace the side grab lines on my Achilles. Somehow the old line which goes thru the oar attachment is just impossible to get out. Any suggestions?

Re: Achilles Inflatable

Broke,

Back out the screw that is going into the side of the oarlock base. Then the rope should just pull out. Chances are it is a bit longer than it needs to be and it is keeping the rope from pulling out. You don't have to remove the screw all the way, just a few turns to back it out a bit.
