Requirements for PWC up here are: an anchor or a paddle.

I chose paddle and had to resolve how to fix it to the Spark. As the paddle dia was 26mm I just drilled a 25mm electric pipe holder onto side of the Spark. You can decide whether to use 1 or 2, I used just 1. Works great.

I just put a collapsible paddle in my storage bin when I go on solo rides. It fits quite nicely.
Would a collapsible paddle meet the regulation?

Good luck trying to move the Spark around by paddling - it barely does anything. I've found the paddle is more useful for using the other end to grab things.
Some requirements are just silly, huh? I'm glad paddles aren't required here.

Nice paddle, I don't have storage bin myself so it's basically the same whether it's a short one or collapsible. This is at least readily at hand and does no harm. I guess any paddle meets the requirements.

I have my Spark often on a sandy shore at my summer cottage, so I'm paddling 20 yards many times a day to get into deep enough water. Is more fun than paddling 20 feet boat off the shore in a windy day I can tell :) and handy when docking as well for grabbing. In addition I go across numerous cruise ship routes everytime so it's good to have some means getting out of the way if a motor failure occurs.

Agree on requirements e.g. rear facing observer when towing... As if one would not notice when the load behind drops off. Luckily we don't have that here, just a recommendation. We can thus tow with 2-up.

Would be a good idea to contact local enforcement that enforced those requirements to see what they have to say although chances are it will get a pass.
