Every tool worth a grain of salt needs a place to rest in between exploits. Nestle your Merrimack paddle in this handmade ash bracket. Guaranteed to secure it on display until you need to un-holster it for another jaunt down the river. Handmade right here in Minnesota by the Sanborn Canoe folks.
Use a single hanger to hold your paddle horizontally, either handle up or blade up. Order 2 hangers to mount your paddle horizontally.
Fast shipping and excellent communication/tracking. Good people to work with. My old Silver Creek and Mitchell paddles really don't fit well but I can use a dremel and make them work. My fault for not calling first.
