  broken paddle
  Posted by: bowler1 on Feb-19-13 7:17 PM (EST)
 

I have only broken a paddle once, but it was a unique situation and the spare storm on the front deck was key.

I broke my paddle on the bottom in clapotis over a sandbar. I tried rolling up but had no lift. I had not realized that I broke my paddle. I was able to pull the storm paddle off the front deck and roll up and then paddle to shore where I could pull my spare Euro paddle from the back deck and continue the day and make the long paddle back to the car.

So there is a good case for a good spare and potentially a spare storm in addition.
