Willi_h2o's statement about a paddle

is right on for arm comfort. Proper paddling method is just as important. Lighter paddles may be a bit costly, but you'll enjoy the ability to paddle farther without a 'heavyweight'. I've purchased three used from fellow p-netters at decent prices.
Our heavy paddles are kept for those who may borrow our plastic boats and don't bother to be cafeful of how they're used.
As far as carrying my boats, I finally went with a Hullavator. Awesome piece of equipment. Thank you hubby, who suggested I order two of them. Over the years, I've have a few people ask for a demo, even while filling my car with fuel. Works for this 5'2" person.
