  I do have one that is about 2.5"

And I must say it is great for relaxed paddling -light and easy to use. I made mine with thin blades, so it is also quite flexible too. Mine is actually an Aleut style with a ridge on one side and flat-ish surface on the other, not an oval on both sides GP.

Rolls fine too.

As great as it is for relaxed paddling, if you try to go fast, it becomes inefficient - begins to slip through the water too much and gets overpowered. probably as much a problem due to narrow blade as it is to flexibility of the blades in my case. But I'm an above average sized male, no small female, so not sure if that applies in your. My wife liked it a lot the few times she used it, though she paddles so rarely that I don't think she could even be a called a paddler -;)
