New shaft on a raft guide stick?

I have this sweet paddle blade that I'd like to salvage. It has the aluminum in it still and the aluminum sticks out 3/4". Any suggestions on how I can replace the shaft with C.F., fiberglass, or wood?

Has anyone done this? I may try to make my own ash shaft, but if there is a way to buy a replacement shaft I'll consider it.


P.S. Check my post in the eddy. I could use your assistance there too...

I know they are. I worked with Kenny on the Gauley. I may talk to him about making a shaft, but I'm really trying to use this sweet old blade...

I say make your own shaft. But make a few so you have spares.
