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.
