Rust-oleum ultra cover paint + primer bonds to clean plastic well (no sanding necessary.)and lots of other things. I attached photo of my oar blades "apple red" and on right front side red first aid kit.

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river.

Now retired kayaker but for decades I painted my expensive kayak paddles basically as BigHorn described.

I used a combo of the most brightest most reflective colors I could find, usually the orange or yellow or green colors in combination. Usually I painted the back side of the blades not the powerface.

The purpose was to make the blades easier to spot should I loose the paddle but primarily to make my paddles unique to spot and less attractive to potential theft.
