I am relatively new to the way of paddling a canoe. Most of what I paddle is kayak. But, my son being in that awkward stage where he can't quite paddle his own kayak, but way to big to double up in my kayak, I bought a canoe recently and am looking for the right way to size me up for a new paddle. The paddles that came with the canoe were 48", and it only took one time out in wind to let me know those are too short.
But paddles come in all kinds of lengths, so what is a guy like me to do?
I am 6'4" and about 190 lbs. My boat is about 17 feet long, not sure how wide.
Thanks for the input,
