    The more often you row, the less likelihood of blisters. Your hands develop callouses eventually, and they can cope with any amount of training, It all goes back to how keen you are to get past the initial blisters and sore bottom etc to develop your body into a training machine which resists overuse of parts of your body ie hands, and develops thicker skin in the vital areas which are the most open to blisters. It also depends on how you are holding the oars/sculling blade handles. If the blade handle is held in your fingers in a relaxed fashion rather than in the palm of your hand you can manipulate the blade more successfully and this will stop the amount of wear and tear on your hands.
