    Comments about Caviness Deluxe Wooden Oar, 8':

    8' oars for under $75 are tough to beat! The finish on these is rather thin, but I knew this before I bought them. If you plan to use these often, and especially if they will sit out in the sun, I suggest adding a few layers of spar urethane and / or paint.

    Please, do not use tacked or nailed leathers / collars and buttons with these oars. Moisture will penetrate those holes and start the basswood rotting in a hurry. I am currently using the rubber slide on (roll on) units from WM, but the best method is to baseball stitch leather around the shafts.

    Otherwise, they make my 12.5' x 5' rowing dinghy a joy to use!
