Canoe Paddle hiking board
Posted by Brian Cunningham on Jan 11, 2007
Ah, yes, sorry for the confusion, I meant a canoe paddle, the nets won't allow a kayak paddle. I've got a friend that owns a Discovery 20, and when he races, he leaves the motor behind and uses a canoe paddle to tie up.
I did a hiking board study, and no matter which way I place the board, fore&aft or port to starboard, it winds up adding too much weight, and winds up being either hard to get to, or too close to the cockpit to do much good, though I could use a kayak paddle. Hence the switch to the nets.
Another alternative is to pull up the rudders horizontal, and use the to skull.
