AS I lifted onto the deck, the paddle shaft snapped. I was practicing in warm water. The would be successful re entry would be my first with new diver's belt riggging aft coaming.
Material on re entry lacks information on destructive forces generated at deck and now shaft.
First attempts saw destrcutive force at the deck on shock cords and paddle blade. Now, with diver's belt holding force on deck, we're SHAFTED !
They all do it ?
