I'd have to agree with the Cali paddlers--by splitting the spares in two and carrying them in separate boats, you've effectively doubled the odds of losing a spare, as half a paddle isn't much better than none.
IMHO, one per boat is never a bad idea, and an especially good one where walking out is going to be an ordeal...
