After my last canoe trip, I noticed that one of my oars was badly scratched so I thought of the most simple way I could think of. It is very easy to fix, only takes 10-15 minutes!
Step 1: Get Your Material(s)
all i used was a electric sander. If your not happy of the results because of the discoloration caused by the sander, you can also apply a coat of varnish to get the best results but i didn't use any and it still looked great.
Step 2: Start Sanding the Oar
press hard for this step to make the process go faster (but not to hard so your arms will be sore for a couple days or that you will break your sander if your using one.).
Step 3: You Are Done!
Now, as i said earlier before in this article, you may apply a light coat of varnish to make it look better.
