Can I turn an 11' Carlisle into an 8.5' by cutting?

I will soon have an 11' Carlisle oar, but need an 8.5' oar. Q: Can I cut to length with a hacksaw and then have a machine shop drill the appropriate sized hole? I am thinking why not, but maybe there is some structural thing inside or something I am not thinking of.
Thanks in advance!
What is the hole size if you happen to know?
