Paddles definately get my vote,loads of uses as aluded to! I have alloy/plastic ones which segment in the middle and therefore fit into the consul,dont flap about and no problem,but there WHEN you need them!

Talk about polarised opinions?
I have a set under the console for the dinghy but in all fairness they are the last thing I would reach for in an emergency and I wouldn't have carried bar for the dinghy.
I have tried paddling a largish RIB and it is a waste of effort in any sort of wind or tide.
My preferred option is the sea anchor or main anchor as appropriate if the aux doesn't work.

Reversible velcro undercrackers are good.

Tony, I expect these will be the wrong colour for your RIB but here's a couple of photos.

What are those things? Do you strap them to your arms?

With you only having a vipermax mOlLeRs you wouldn't know the quality you get from Avon

Thanks JSP - very helpful photos but the ones I have seen somewhere are black which would suit the boat better as all other fittings are black on dark blue tubes.

Thanks

Tony,

I had them on my previous Osprey.

They were fitted by the company that made the tubes Eurocraft in Leyland.

http://www.eurocraft.com/

If you speak to David he should know what you are after. They were square shaped pieces of hardish black plastic about 5mm thick and 3"x3" stiched to round hypalon patches The black plastic then had two slots cut into it that a 2" thick piece of velcro passed through and then looped round the oars.
