    howdy all. I just picked up my first pontoon and one of the oars it came with has a good size chunk ripped out of it. The previous owner said he smacked it on a log jam. They are advanced composite oars with Oar rights. I was wondering if it is possible to replace the blade or will I need to replace the entire oar? Also if anyone has any spare parts or ideas I am more than happy to hear them. Thanks a lot

    Some oars have replaceable blades while other do not, all depends on the brand and model. Advanced composites is affiliated with Cataract oars. If you have the 1 3/8 inch shaft Mini Mags, chances are you will not be able to get a blade but you might be able to replace the lower section. If you have a 1 7/8 shaft, you will likely be able to get a replacement blade, of which a Cataract or Carlisle blade will fit.
