The plans are two sheets (48″ x 36″) of comprehensive details to allow you to construct a pair of the finest, strongest, and lightest (3.5 lbs each) hollow rowing oars to complement any wooden rowing boat. The details including full-size patterns for making 3 different blade shapes, a standard Hatchet, a Macon, as well as the “Icelander,” a special more traditional long narrow blade for really long open water voyages. There are details for both a standard 9′ 6″ shaft or a long 10’ version.

Mike Snook passed in late 2012 and the company seems missing. The boat in the background of these oars is his Sound model that was apparently never finished. Does anyone know what has become of the company or of this particular design?
