Re: oar blades being planks: Crew and sculling oars are shaped to grab the water more efficiently, but rowing in a raft goes forwards and backwards in too many different conditions to make that practical. I can't imagine sculling without a shaped blade to really lock in and grab the smooth water, but can't imagine rowing a raft with one.
