My kayak paddle is 7' long and during padeling, every time I raise one end to padle with the other end up water runs off the blade and down onto my lap. Sure their is a drip rings on the padle but they only do a little. I was thinking of making a spray skirt for the kayak. (my 14' tandum open cockpit)
An idea popped into my head so I tried this.....
I put Rain-X on one of the paddles and tested it out in my hot tub, as I raised it up it drips dry so fast water barley had time to reach the drip ring, I wonder how long it would stay on the paddle.
Wow the other paddle just holds the water, like a film of water sticks to it.
