To dream of a paddle boat represents confrontation with an uncertain or negative situation that you perceive as being wonderful. You don't feel a sense of danger or urgency. You may even see potential benefits to taking your time dealing with a problem.
Pregnant women often dream of being in a paddle boat. This may reflect their enjoyment of confronting the challenges of pregnancy.
Example: A woman dreamed of being in a paddleboat and racing the boat far out into a lake ahead of her husband and then finding herself with with aching legs and a headache. In waking life she was pregnant and finding that all the extra housework she was giving herself was giving her non-stop headaches. The paddleboat may have reflected her relaxed feelings towards handling her pregnancy.
