Oar Plans / Books

Post by RayB »

Can anyone recommend a book, plans or website for constructing oars? I am building the lap-strake pulling boat "Liz" (18' long / 3' wide; designed by Ken Bassett). I will probably build two sets of oars; 8' standard blade for use with a fixed seat, and 9.5' spoon blades for use with a sliding seat.

Thanks!
