Here is a GIF version of the image, better suited for printing out.

Image size: 1845x689 pixels.
Weathered thin old paddle found in the loft of the old church. No ridge down the center, elliptical ends, softly rounded without ridge down the center of the blade. Such a thin narrow blade is just the opposite of the Kiitdit blade which I suspect must flex when applied from a standing start. Shaft is a rounded square.

Overall length: 226cm
Transition to rounded square shaft starts at 85cm
Transition to paddle shaft on the edge of paddle starts at 65cm.

Measured and drawn by Gail Ferris. Dec 4th, 1997.
