Most of the oars I’ve made have been leathered. If they are not leathered, then a smooth rowlock or protective notch must be used to prevent constant wear to the oar’s loom. There are different techniques used foro leathering. The pilot gigs use a specific method that is easily tightened. The leather can be treated with neatsfoot oil or tallow.
