In 2019 I read a fascinating story in the September issue of Rowing News Magazine.—an article about Coleen Fuerst, the president of the Durham Boat Company that makes and sells Dreher oars. It is a fascinating story. You cannot find this article anywhere. You have to order the issue from Rowing News Magazine. It’s worth it. Call them at (603) 643-8476 .
Here is an interesting video about the oars.
