Default Drift boat oars, fiberglass?

I have some older oars that we get slivers on the arms from leaning over them, should I add resin to them to reseal them.

I'd take some 400 grit and sand the slivers off first, but a coat of resin should work for re sealing

To re-finish oars that are splintering it might take coarse sandpaper #100 grit or even #80 to get down to the splinters. Then work your way up, #220, is usually smooth enough to take finish well and feel good. A couple light coats of spar varnish and you're back in business.
