Hi Frank,

I would have them blades towards the bow of the boat, half on each side the of the boat. Lashings not 100% sure about that era, most likely lashed to the thwarts (seats) either round the oars, under the thwart, buck up the other side and back round the oars, or similar but crossed on top of the oars.

Hope that helps
