  traditional drip control?
  Posted by: willowleaf on Dec-12-12 10:22 AM (EST)
 

I've yet to try it with my own GPs, but I've noticed that all the longer native-made kayak and baidarka paddles displayed "as collected" in the "Polar World" permanent exhibit in Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Natural History have strips of cotton rags wrapped around the shafts, in the position where modern paddles have drip rings. I've gotta think it was for drip control.
