Wooden Oars & Paddles
GULL makes a complete range of paddles in any combination of length, shaft size, blade size and grip type.
Why should you choose Gull? Just look at all the features listed below!
THE GULL "WHITE WATER" OAR
Truly magnificent Laminated Ash/Fir 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 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 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 oar is a perfect specimen. Sizes from 5ft to 8ft 6" (1.5m to 2.55m).
GULL 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).
- GULL 'River' Oars,' 'White Water' Oars and 'Striped' Paddles
- Feature Gull's unique laminated shaft with strong Australian Ash on
the stressed faces supported by a light weight Pine core. These shafts
are almost as strong as solid Ash shafts but are lighter, better
looking and much more stable. Fig 1
- GULL's new Red Beech Palm Grip
- Combines the best of aesthetic looks and pleasant feel with superb
craftsmanship to produce a well-balanced, contrasting coloured grip that
is pleasing to the eye and extra nice in the hand. Fig 2
- GULL River Oars - White
Water Oars and Tee Handle Paddles have a hardwood fillet laminated in
the blade tips to resist splitting in arduous conditions. Fig 3
- GULL OAR SLEEVES -
Made from Black Polyurethane plastic, these sleeves cannot be broken
under extreme conditions, are very resistant to abrasion and will last
for years. Gull oar sleeves are made in 2 sizes, 44mm and 40mm, to fit
perfectly on Gull oars. Fig 4
- NYLON ROWLOCKS - Made
from strong and wear-resistant Nylon, these rowlocks come complete
with gunwale ferrules which lock in the shank with a half turn. Fig 5
