A Sculling Oar

In the event that the engine won’t start and there is no wind, a back-up plan is needed (when close to an obstruction). Ours will be a sculling oar. Maybe we will like it so much that we will just pull the engine out altogether?

We went to the very best for our new oar: Shaw & Tenney, in Orono, ME. This oar was actually a seconds for the Charles W. Morgan and measures over 15′ long. Lots of varnish and she’ll be ready for the water.

While we were in Maine (and in preparation for offshore training… or maybe just because it is fun), we also went whitewater rafting on the Penobscot! It was my second time on the river and even after flipping the entrée raft we were having a blast.
