The standard handles are epoxied in. Not to say that a long rod pounded up the shaft wouldn't break that loose - but you should check with cataract to see if they know a good way to get the handles out
If you search i did a thread about cutting them down (shorter) and preserving the handles
There may be a way to drop a bunch of washers and pour more epoxy down the shaft from the oar end
