Refurbishing Pole Cat oars
Just picked up a couple of nine foot Sawyer Pole Cats off of craigslist for cheap. They had been stored outside and appear to have oxidation on the blades and shafts. Rope wraps are in good shape, handles are dried out and cracking.
I was going to replace the handles and take a "magic eraser" to the blades. Is there anything I can do for the shafts? Some kind of protectant, like 303 for rafts? Or should I not worry about it and giggle every time I think of how little I paid....
