Is my paddle done?
I bought a werner shogun at the end of last season and have been loving it. I noticed a small crack in the center of the blade while paddling yesterday.
You can see in the photo that the crack actually goes through the fiberglass of the paddle blade. I am assuming with the crack started, a few more good hits on the blade will crack the paddle in half. Or is this something I can keep paddling with for a while? Is there any way to repair this on my own or is the paddle blade done for?
I emailed werner and they said this would not likely fall under warranty and they would charge $166 + shipping to replace it. Not really wanting to spend this money, and not have a paddle for a few weeks during peak season.
