Broken oar blade - not sure where to go next

Hey folks -

I've got a broken oar blade that I didn't notice until the end of a float Not really sure if I can repair it or have to go with a new set of blades and/or a new set of oars and blades. I'm thinking the blades themselves are mini versions of a true whitewater blade as they are only 1" OD on the male part of the blade that would insert into the shaft. It appears to be pre-drilled for a titeset fitting, but the oar shaft is not. It simply had a collar that tightened down.

Any tips?

Send it back to Sawyer. In my experience, they will repair for a minimal fee.

Which reminds me, I need to do the same thing.
