the bigger picture

I think all three of us should go on a canoe trip together; it's obvious you're just as passionate about canoeing (and talking about canoeing)then I am. All points made about the proper stroke to use is correct - but the big picture here is that all three of us like to go paddling (no matter how we get ourselves across the water). I actually have one canoe partner who uses a bent-shaft in the bow and I use a tradtional paddle in the stern. This shouldn't work, and we definitely get laughed at when we paddle together, but we've done this for a dozen years or so and neither of us will change for the other. It's commical really.
And yes, the photos should of had my buddy leaning to one side; doing so in a propector design while solo has to be the most Canadian thing I know.
Thanks for your input
