to the orininal spirit of the thread.

But I would think with your experience you would be able to become competent with a repertoire of single-bladed strokes pretty quickly.

Not to hijack the thread, but I think floatation is a good idea for canoes used on any moving water, and often stick them in for downriver trips on Class I even at the risk of getting chuckled at.

I think Tom Foster's DVD "Solo Open Whitewater Canoeing" is a great reference for fine-tuning canoe strokes and fundamental whitewater open boat (or C1) maneuvers.
