Do you like my "Vintage Boat Oars"? I love them and got them on E-Bay auction from a lady living on Lake Michigan. (That's her story anyway.) It took me a while to figure out the bidding protocol (and Haley wasn't here to help me!) but once I posted my "maximum bid" I just left it up to Mr. E-Bay and I won...Yes, Rick there were other bidders who wanted these!
They have "chippy" paint, worn leather straps, and one of the oars has a "B" (Boston maybe?) branded on the paddle. I hung them with black iron curtain pulls from Lowes.
