Yeah, I've made some paddles using this technique, except I made them with just one layer of 4m (glassed both sides). I thinking that at least one extra layer of 4mm may be a good idea for an oar, as the longer shaft gives the rower more leverage and puts more strain on the blade.
Are you using galley slaves or rowing yourself?
