sits in a removeable gunnel attached seat approx. 2ft. in front of me. this is a great boat to play eddies and get through tight spots in michigan rivers. i must be doing something wrong because can not keep up with tandem boats without using double blade paddle in quiet h2o. same applies to stiff winds because of the rocker and high sides. any suggestions out there? a single blade is fine for playing the currents. i feel this boat would be easier to paddle if it had some tumblehome, you have to lean out quite far to do your strokes. when i bought the canoe at the company in canada i also bought a removeable portage rack that you tighten onto the gunnels but no matter how tight i tighten it on trail terrain eventually it twists off for a not too good feeling on the top of your head. anyone else ever have this problem? i don't want to take the boat above lake superior without a bombproof removeable rack.
