I drew these oars up to suit the Goat
Island Skiff, for a particular person. They are suitable
for most boats with beam of 4'6" (1.37m) to 5' (1.52m)
- email me if you are in doubt.
As they were for a particular person I haven't created
an integrated plan pack for them. However, the FREE
PADDLE PLANS use exactly the same methods
and sequence of assembly - so use the drawing for the
oars and the paddle method and all will be well.
IMPORTANT - One thing to remember though
is that the SPAR GAUGE that suits the oars will be larger
than the one for the paddles. There is information for
making any size spar gauge in the paddle plans - choose
the right one!
IMPORTANT 2 - It is recommended that
the Oars be epoxy sealed and varnished - they will look
great - but the handle should be left natural for good
grip. It could be oiled to protect it from the environment
