    Comments about Caviness Basswood Boat Oars:

    Wow I ordered a pair of the 8' oars and got them in about 4 days even though they were out of stock when I ordered. They are great. The finish is not furnature quality but is better than I expected. I may add a coat of varnish later.
    Great value and service for a hard to find item.
    I am looking forward to using them on my 14' deep vee rowboat.

        Comments about Caviness Basswood Boat Oars:

        Caviness Basswood Oars are a great value for the price. They are perfect fit for skiffing out to mooring and poking around the harbor. Admittedly the finish is disappointing and coarse. I found it more cost effective to improve this easily myself with a quick 180 grit sand and 2 overcoats of polyurethane. Any finish or paint will improve these oars to help prolong the life and integrity of wood. These oars are lightweight and stiff with a narrower shaft than older traditional oars. Solid hardwood oars typically cost twice to 3x as much. This oar meets expectations for value price. Oars and paddles are sold individually, not in pairs.

            Comments about Caviness Basswood Boat Oars:

            I have an 8-foot Caviness oar and ordered a second to have a pair. Unfortunately, the diameters and lengths don't match. This is very disappointing. The finish is minimal, but that is not a problem as I was planning to sand and finish both to match.

                Comments about Caviness Basswood Boat Oars:

                These are crudely built and poorly finished. One was 1/2 inch longer and was not finished on the end. Grips were also 1/2 inch off. I may return them but the shipping is a problem. They will not make your dinghy look good.

                  I use them to row a 14' row boat I use for fishing. The oars are light weight so they are easy to handle.
                  They could use additional finish coatings to protect and prolong the life of these oars.

                      Comments about Caviness Basswood Boat Oars:

                      First reviewer is right, the oars need another coat of poly on them. I don't know whay he rated something that would need hours of additional word as being 5 out of 5 stars.

                      The shaft diameter is 1 5/16ths inches, which is smaller than most oar lock collars and oar locks. Now I have to buy new, smaller oar locks. You get what you pay for.

                            These oars are priced well and seem to be well constructed, other than the fact that they have almost no varish and the wood color is mismatched. This would not have been a problem to me had boath oars been the same, one was a solid color, the other had three diferent color pieces of wood glued together.[...]

                            I purchased these oars to replace a pair that I had had for years. The grandsons managed to lose one and one oar doesn't work real well. Factory finish is minimal so I will sand down and apply several layers of varnish. The wood working is excellant. Good value for the bucks spent.
