Alternatively have a paddle (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

oar

Here is my best explanation:

'paddle' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'alternatively have a' is the subsidiary indication.

'alternatively' becomes 'or'.

'have' is an insertion indicator.

'or' placed around 'a' is 'oar'.

(Other definitions for oar that I've seen before include "Blade (rowing)", "Rowing blade", "Propelling pole", "Scull", "Rowing boat operator", "Row", "Manual boat propeller", "Boat propellant", "Boat propeller" and "A manual boat propeller".)
