I've got something similar to this, they're handy 'cos you can whip yer paddle out smartish if something/one needs a smack. They're stuck low down on the inside of the tubes.

They do them in black too.

Thanks
Tony - I have them on my black RIB (unfortunately it's in pieces at the moment so no pics) - made by Henshaws (www.henshaw.co.uk), Part No HEN001130. I can't find the part number for the velcro bit that holds the handle end of the paddle but give Chris a call at Henshaws and he'll sort you out.

And no, I've never used them for paddling the RIB but have found them useful for fending off stuff and as a depth gauge in places like Newtown Creek.

Cheers,
Mark

Those in the last but one post are what I've got too, except that mine are attached to the GRP immediately beneath the tubes on the inside. That keeps the paddles out of the way but immediately available when required.

I agree that paddles are useless for paddling a 5m+ Rib but for fending off, punting over shallows, pushing off a shingle bank or even quelling a mutinous crew, they're great!

I had two wooden paddles on my old Valiant 3.8m - useful.. when launching if its not deep enough to put the engine down and also once when we ran out of fuel about 250m away from the marina!

I note the new rib im picking up (valiant 5.2m) at the weekend has two paddles on as well, we will have to see how it goes!
