Oarlock leather

Needed to do something with the boat despite it is still under cover so I decided to leather the oar locks. My oar locks are galvanized steel so they wear quite a lot on the oar leathers, so now I will have leather rubbing on leather instead.

Making patterns 

Marking on my trusty cow hide

Nailing the holes for the stitches 

All done, now all I need to do is let them dry and grease them a little.
