Ordering and Shipping

We build custom oars. This allows us to offer the greatest selection possible to meet your specific needs, however unique they may be. While many of our more common configurations work for most people, the fact is: if you want it, we will build it.

If you would like to order preconfigured sculls, check out our Bantam Sculls. If you are ordering sweeps or would like to configure a set of sculls, choose from our oar components. Lead times vary depending on the components you choose but are generally 2–3 weeks.

To order Bantam Sculls, simply give us a call.

To order sweeps or to order sculls that you configure:

  1. Choose your components. We recommend making your selections in the following order:
    1. Blade
    2. Shaft
    3. Oar length
    4. Handle
    5. Grip (sweep or scull)
  2. Use the order form to make note of your selections.
  3. Call us toll-free (US and Canada). You can find our number on our Contact page. Alternatively, you can mail or fax your completed order form to us.
  4. After you have placed your order, we will email you a copy of the order so that you can confirm the specifications. Review the order carefully and then confirm your specifications by email or phone. We do not schedule your oars to be built until we have received your confirmation. Confirm your specifications promptly to avoid delays with your order.
