    If it is part of the emergency kit (flares, knife etc) in a waterproof container, that's where it should stay until required in an emergency.

    Thats what paddles are for surely.
    I agree. The likelyhood is that one of the others will fall out. If the situation is that bad that the driver falls out, so should everyone else. Yes, as well as engine failure, that's what paddles are for.

    Ah shur tis much easier to loop it around the throttle cable.. It won't fall out there...

    Or better yet, hang a nice decorative key ring fob from it...


    Joking aside, I always thought the best place for it was to hook it onto the free ring of the lifejacket.
