oar / oars required

.
An exceptionally high tide took one of our ancient wooden dingy oars last Winter.

The boatyard has now said I can access the dinghy again to get out to Avy-J, so I am looking for either a single oar that will match the missing one or a pair of oars.

All suggestions except the fatuous welcome.
