The Oar is a craftable Item in the Seafaring Tab, exclusive to Don't Starve Together, and introduced in Return of Them. It requires a Log to craft, and a Think Tank to prototype. An Oar can be used to move a Boat across the Ocean.

If used inconsistently (too little time between uses), the player will be splashed with water and gain 9 Wetness Meter.png, while the Oar will lose an amount of durability that is equivalent to 25 uses.

Driftwood Oar[]

A much more efficient, lighter design.


The Driftwood Oar can also be crafted in the Seafaring Tab. It requires a Driftwood Piece to craft instead of a Log. Driftwood Oars only last for 400 uses but apply 1.66 times the force of a regular Oar to the Boat with each use.

Failing at rowing with a Driftwood Oar will also increase the player's Wetness by 9 Wetness Meter.png and reduce its durability by 25 uses.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Both types of Oars were introduced in the Turn of Tides update.
  • Oars can also be used as Weapons. However, it's not advised to do so due to the low damage they deal.
  • A Malbatross Bill can serve the same purpose as Oars.
