Re: Okume oars

Interesting. I have the similar toughts myself since I'm building Oxford shell, but for now I plan to get some used old style macon blade oars from the club in the neighborhood.
Just one remark. Wouldn't 12 mm + fiberglass cloth be too much for blades? I believe I would go with few layers of veneer not thicker than 4 mm in total. If you break a blade you can always fix it with epoxy.
BTW, have you by any chance built an Oxford shell?
