Take a Spare Paddle

Spare Paddle
Have a spare paddle secured but quickly accessible in your canoe. It is fairly common to accidentaly drop a paddle and have it go out of reach quickly. Also, paddles break! Especially while river canoeing. A spare paddle can also be very useful if its a different blade shape or length for a different style of paddling. For example, if your trip is mostly lake but includes some river paddling, take a river paddle as a spare.
