If you ever lose or break a paddle with a partner?

Break the paddle apart, tie the yaks together, each take a half and go.  These two ladies made it all around the lake today in quick time.

Hmm. Efficiency wise, I'd say the one with the whole paddle should be towing the one with half, that way you have 3 blades going instead of 2.

 

After having a cheap paddle with a plastic joint ferrule break in half once, I've taken to keeping an old 'ground to teaspoons' whitewater 3 pc in the hatch. Better than nothing.  On a fairly serious whitewater trip once my buddy busted a paddle early on. No one had a breakdown, but one guy had 'hand paddles' and a goofy but very skilled guy we didn't know well volunteered to use them the rest of the trip and gave my friend his paddle. Righteous! Takes balls to do class 4 with hand paddles. His beer was on us.

I don't ride a bike without a spare inner tube and I don't paddle (or peddle) without a spare paddle.  Yes I was a Boy Scout.
