Re: locking paddle board

I'm sorry, but I never heard of an inflatable paddle board? Is it possible you mean an oar for an inflatable boat? If so, I have seen locking cables made from 7 x7 wire, eyes spliced in the ends, with appropriately sized holes drilled in the paddles or oar handles (if timeber), that can then be locked to the mother boat, or to an eye on the transom of the dinghy.

Friends with rowing dinghies just put the thole pins in their shirt pocket.

Re: locking paddle board

Hi, again,

Wow, my big ooops!

Jim pointed out to me that paddle boards could be inflatables. I would not imagine there is any good way to lock it to the big boat. If you just wanted to tie it up during the daytime, you might be able to fabricate a D-ring attachment to it, but to keep it being stolen, you'd want to disinflate it and stow it below, MHO.

If you're in Aus, ALDI are currently selling inflatable paddle boards. Beats me how you'd lock one though.
