    are you able to order a rope wrap to be done on these oars?

      Yes, Matt, rope wrap is $25.99 per oar; rope wrap + rubber stop is $29.99. Give us a call to order, 800.635.5202.

      Answered on 11/21/2014 by Clyde from NRS


      I don't know where to get the oar wrapped but I do know that if you call Sawyer Oars they will sell you the correct rope, with complete instructions on how to wrap it yourself. I have done it myself on two sets of oars and it is realitively easy. Because those particular oars are tapered you will have to apply a coat of epoxy to the oar just prior to wrapping. When the epoxy hardens it will prevent to the wrap from loosening.
      Hope this is helpful.

    How easy is it to move the oar sleeve and stopper if it is not in the exact location for my boat?

      Norm, the oar sleeve/stopper is a friction fit, so it can be moved; you'll just have to work at it a bit.

    what is the appropriate oar lock for this oar?
    Asked on 4/25/2013 by Eric

      Our Superston oarlocks will work on the rubber sleeve/stopper. However, just below the sleeve the shaft narrows and the shaft will slip through the horns of the oarlock. You can squeeze the horns of the oarlocks closer together to prevent this. You can do this in a vice by slipping a pipe over a horn and bending it inward.

    I have two pair of Sawyer oars that are wrapped beneath the collar. Two of the oars need new foam grips. Is it possible to replace just the foam grips? Thanks for your reply! :)
    Asked on 9/5/2012 by Bev from Wasilla, AK

      Yes. We do not stock the Sawyer replacement grips but we can custom order them for you. The individual grips are $3 each. Or, a pair that comes in packaging, instructions and rope guides (not sure what those are) is $8. They'll be simple to replace. Just cut off the old and use a bit of heat and some hair spray to install. Call us at 800.635.5202 to place the order.

Best Uses

    Comments about Sawyer Standard Utility Oar:

    Oars used on a home built dinghy that turned out like a piece of fine furniture. I couldn't possibly use a lesser oar than the Sawyer. Its beautifully tapered and shaped in the Old School fashion. Sawyer could have taken more care in the finish. There were 3 or 4 black scuff marks in the wood that were varnished over. I fixed all that and added more coats of varnish.
