Clint Chase in Maine is about to make a batch of oars that are suitable for Storerboats. They are nicely balanced with the right amount of spring. He needs to do a batch to make it cost effective, so if you are interested in some handcrafted oars contact him to see which sizes he will be making first.
Perttu is building his Quick Canoe in almost impossible conditions. The middle of the Finnish Winter. But the boat is going together well. He is building it very cheaply out of ply and polyester resin.
