Some common sense: If you lose your paddle when on the water, would you really want your spare to be out of reach "inside"?

I keep a home made 3 piece spare on my back deck. Have never had to use it, though I'm also a tame water kayaker.

But laughingly, I was queried about it deridingly by a paddling buddy on one jaunt. Almost immediately after he said something, he smacked his paddle on a guy wire on a dock we were passing and it was wrenched out of his hands, plus he had no leash. He was nearly helpless and I had to paddle over to bring him his lost paddle.

At that point I made sure to remind him that was why I had a spare on my boat! He was chagrined, you can bet on that.
