Touring Paddles, Single and Double

There are two paddles detailed in this pack single bladed and double bladed. It is usual to carry single bladed paddles on a canoe, but a double bladed paddle can be useful as an auxiliary when paddling by yourself or in calm conditions. There is information on sizing the paddles to the user - this is particularly important on long trips.

Paddle, Wooden Canoe

This canoe paddle was first carved as a model from a section of a willow branch and then an actual full size paddle was created from a 2 inch by 6 inches redwood board. Choose a light weight wood as you want the finished paddle to be light in your hands (examples: spruce, pine, cedar, redwood as lumber or logs).

Oars, Quick and Easy
