Aleut paddle drip Posted by: ret603 on Dec-12-12 2:18 PM (EST)
My Aleut paddle, which yours is based on, drips less than my GPs. However, sometimes it is a question of which direction the wind is coming from and how strong it is. Blowback! Stroke mechanics also matters as a long stroke tends to bring the other paddle tip over the gunnels facilitating some drip.
Those Aleutian paddles sure are awesome with the Rapidfire, paddle drip or not.
