I have/had the same issue. There is someone in Arizona (I think) who has a Saroca and was willing to sell the sliding-seat rowing kit (sliding seat and frame, oars, mini dagger board). As I remember he wanted something like $500 for the full set up. He wasn't willing to sell everything except the oars, and it was going to cost over $300 to ship the oars to where I needed them in New England. If you're closer to Arizona or don't mind the cost I'll find his name and contact info and send to you. If you want, you can e-mail me direct: my name, all lower case, at yahoo.

If you are looking for rowing gear without the sliding seat, I'd suggest NRS (NRS - Kayaking Gear, Rafting Supplies and Boating Equipment). I was looking at the Cataract Mini Mag oars they sell. They also have a variety of other rowing gear.

Good luck!
Scot

The guy in Arizona had the whole boat, and would probably sell it, but I'm sure would not sell only the sail. He was open to selling the sliding-seat rowing stuff separately because that's a specialized option that many people wouldn't want. The sail rig, on the other hand, is basic and anyone wanting the boat will want the sail.

Have Saroca currently in S. New Hampshire. Weren't planning to sell yet, but . . . ? We were thinking about taking it south for some sailing this fall . . . How quickly do you want to find one? What use do you have in mind? Ours has the performance sail package, does not have the sculling package, has a homemade and pretty nice cockpit tent for sleeping aboard when coastal and island sailing.

It's a somewhat unusual rig in that a sleeve of more flexible material on the sail slides over the mast. I'm not aware of other manufactured sails like it. You might be able to add a sleeve to some other sail, or have a sailmaker do so.
