2 piece Greenland paddle
Date: 10/2/2001, 11:01 pm

I was intrigued in the post abt the SF Bay Paddlefest by:

"I had a conversation with a guy from Feathercraft in Vancouver, and he mentioned that the breakdown Greenland paddle in their rack was the only one he used. His reasoning was that it was a bit slower than a euro-style paddle, but much better for rolling and control, even with the Feathercraft."

I searched "two piece Greenland paddle" and got no threads so I was wondering if anyone has made one and how are the halves joined. I only see round, rather skinny ferrules available and they don't seem appropriate. I'd like to make one so I can carry a spare on the rear deck. Maybe a storm paddle is the only good solution, but I wanted to ask.
