Lahnakoski



Oars

We are Europe’s leading manufacturer of wooden oars. Our technological expertise is apparent in everything from the basics to advanced product development. A professional oar maker knows that for an oar to slide smoothly through water, its blade must be lighter than its grip by just the right amount. Lahnakoski oar breaks the surface of the water subtly, with minimal splash or whirl. But why take our word for it – try it yourself! Each waterway is different and each boat is different, and boats are used for multiple purposes. Whether you travel on fresh water or on the sea, whether you are relaxing, transporting or fishing, and whether your boat is made of wood, fibreglass, aluminium or rubber, you will always find the real oars you need at Lahnakoski.

STORING AND MAINTENANCE OF OARS

When not in use, store in a dry place away from direct sunlight. You should check the condition of your oars regularly. If the oars are fine but the varnish is damaged, please remove the varnish and apply 2-3 layers of urethane varnish.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT ROWLOCK

For oars with round shafts we recommend Lahnakoski rowlocks made of plastic or Lahnakoski oar collars combined with open U-formed rowlocks. Fixed clamp-on rowlocks suit also very well. Rowlock with through-bolt should not be used as they may weaken the oars and the guarantee does not cover such defects.

Traditional lake oars with square formed shafts are used with through-bolt rowlocks.

SELECT THE RIGHT SIZE OARS

When selecting oars, length is the most important factor. The below chart shows min. & max. recommendations. High free-board boats require longer oars, low free-board boats may use shorter oars. In flowing water shorter oars are recommended.

100 cm 150 cm – 180 cm
110 cm 180 cm – 210 cm
120 cm 195 cm – 225 cm
130 cm 225 cm – 255 cm
140 cm 240 cm – 270 cm
