  blade length
  Posted by: gjf12 on Dec-27-12 10:16 AM (EST)
 

I would add that overall length should depend on blade length and loom length. First choose the loom length, i.e., hand placement width, then the blade length. The hand, with any length paddle, should come very close to, or even touch, the water.

The dimensions have to be determined by trial and error. Use of the anthropomorphic/Inuit relations to body dimensions are without merit.
