Embarrassed to say, It Did. A rafter in our party in front of me went in. I was directed to go river right but tried to help the one that went in and paid the price. I hit the meat.
Unfortunately my name and number was not on the oar. Learned many lessons this weekend. The oar is very plain. Black handles with a little bit of wood grain at the lower end of the handle, aluminum shaft, black rope wrap, black rubber oar stop, and black sawyer blade.
Thanks for the reply.
