"After steaming for a time, I'd set up a couple of v-blocks on a work bench to support the ends of the round shaft and then take a Quickgrip type of clamp and and a short block of wood and clamp the oar slightly past the straight point till it drys"

Well, after reading what I posted, I realized it might not be very clear as to what I was suggesting. I should have posted to place the v-blocks along the edge of the work bench. Then, with the oar positioned so the high point of the oar shaft is up, place the clamp so one end is under the work bench and the other end (with the block of wood to distribute the load) on top of the shaft to force the oar shaft down to straighten it out.

I'd let it dry for quite a while. Even if the surface looks dry, the interior will still be saturated.

Learch....I left Sawyer in December to run a company in Grand Junction Colorado. I was not aware of the Chapter 11 proceedings until everyone else found out. My opinion is that they will definitely pull through and be a stronger company for it. Lot of bad debt from the Roguewood fiasco in 2015, which is the main cause of what is happening now. I wish them them the best of luck(as does everyone I hope) and if there is anything that I can do to help them, you know I will be there to support them!

Ps....the OWA meeting was fun time, really enjoyed meeting everyone!

Closer to 1/3 of the oar length from the grip end for the stop location might prove to be more comfortable for you.
Good luck with it anyway.
