Mill Creek 16.5 Paddle Length

Question for other MC 16.5 paddlers:  What length paddles are you using?  I bought a pair of 230cm paddles.  I have an inflatable kayak and a 225cm paddle for it which is really just barely long enough.  I was really torn between a 230cm or a 240cm paddle.  I'm 5'10", my wife is 5'6" and the MC 16.5 is 33" wide.  If I place the 230cm paddle in the vertical position, I can barely reach the tip with my fingertips.

RE: Mill Creek 16.5 Paddle Length

I am 5'10" and use a 240cm, my wife uses a 230cm. I find I need the extra length for the 33" wide beam on the MC 16.5.
