Building a paddle for my girlfriend as a gift - managed to measure her last night with only some confused comments :) - Based on the normal methods I get 76" (floor to raised hand) or 78" (Armspan + elbow) and a 17" loom (hand-hand).
She's 5'3" and her boat is probably 21". I'm thinking to go to 80" long and maybe a 20" loom.
Sound about right? I've built a couple paddles for myself a while back, but this is the first time building one for someone else, and I'd like it to turn out nice. She normally paddles a high-angle ero, but mentioned she was curious about the Greenland.
