Leaky paddles

Last year I ended up having one of my paddles repaired as water had entered the shaft, making the paddle strokes feel heavy and off balance. The paddle wasn’t damaged, it’s more likely that the glue around the joints had worn slightly allowing water ingress. I now use Aquaseal around the outside of the joints as a precautionary measure, doing this from new to hopefully make my paddles last longer.
