            They're sturdy little aluminum oars for my sturdy little aluminum boat. Just what I needed at a fair price.

              Comments about Caviness BOS Synthetic Oars:

              These new style oars are very well made with high quality heavy duty aluminum shafts and great rowing handles w/ contoured shape . The oar blades are very sturdy and I believe the oar hooks/horns and oar hook/horns side-mounts will last along time , as well and the hook/horns shafts and hook side mount shaft holes have a great fit , with the bushings that are in the hook side mounts ! Great products ! My use is for emergency oars system in a 15 ft. fishing sports boat , when needed for back-up !

                  Nice functional oars, reasonably priced. Not as aesthetically appealing as a nice set of wood oars but good for casual use and where you may not be able to take care of good wooden oars.

                      do they make oar collars to keep the composite oars from sliding through the oar locks?

                        Needed to replace rotted wooden oars for my duckboat. 5' oars hard to find. Use as back-up for my 3-hp outboard. These oars are lightweight but strong and durable, won't rot,and used with the recommended oarlocks are the perfect emergency-use propulsion. Price is great too!

                          Comments about Caviness BOS Synthetic Oars:

                          I was happy to find a good quality 8' oar that is light but strong. I stow them under the gunwales of my little cape cod catboat. You never know when the wind is going to let you down. These are affordable and sturdy. I made a little collar out of a big O ring so they wont slip through the oar locks. [...]

                              My application would be made easier if stop collars were available which would fit the shaft and safety the oar above the oarlock.

                                  It was very hard to find 8 ft Oars. These oars are lightweight and are perfect for what I will use them for. Received my order in a matter of days. Would highly recommend this company because of their selection, ease of ordering and quick shipment.
