Why should you choose Gull Rowing Oars? Just look at all the features listed below!

Heyland Wooden Gull Oars & Paddles2THE GULL “WHITE WATER” OAR

Truly magnificent Laminated Ash/Fir Rowing Oars. Constructed from carefully selected Tasman Fir* cores with Ash laminates on the stress faces and the blade edges. The tips are reinforced with Ash fillets to withstand the rigours of white water rafting. These very strong, resilient boat oars have a light, live feel. For the exacting demands of the White Water rafter this is the best oar available. Sizes from 9ft to 12 ft (2.7m to 3.6m).

THE GULL “RIVER” OAR

Probably the finest rowing oar we make. Laminated from Ash and Fir to the same exacting standards and manufacturing techniques as our rugged White Water Oars, but with a slimmer 2″ (51mm) shaft. These river oars are especially designed for medium sized inflatables, are ideal for drift boat fishing and are a delight to handle. Sizes from 8ft to 10ft (2.4m to 3m).

THE GULL “ASH” OAR

Crafted from strong, durable Australian Ash, these heavy duty oars have extra long, laminated blades and selected straight-grain robust shafts. Built to withstand the rigours of strong arm tactics and turbulent water punishment. Sizes from 8ft to 10ft (2.4m to 3m).

THE GULL “SELECT” OAR

A beautifully finished, laminated oar made from Tasman Fir*, finely sanded and grain sealed before varnishing. Robust and strong but light and durable. Every wooden rowing oar is a perfect specimen. Sizes from 5ft to 8ft 6″ (1.5m to 2.55m).

Gull Wooden Rowing Oars have developed special polyurethane OAR SLEEVES. They are custom made to fit without the need for nails.

THE GULL “JOINTED” OAR

The result of considerable research and rigorous testing over a number of years. The tough, acetyl snap-lock joint avoids the problems of denting and corrosion associated with metal ferrules. Sizes from 5ft to 7ft (1.5m to 2.1m).
