  Trust doesn't work
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Sep-20-12 5:31 PM (EST)

I do trust the ability of ancient paddlers, but I don't necessarily trust us to understand what it is they intended. I'm still not convinced the ridge isn't a cambered back face.

Second, how can you "trust" inconsistent propositions. X and not-X cannot both be true propositions. If a minority of ancient paddle makers made paddles with ridges and a majority made paddles without ridges -- both groups depending for their lives on their paddles -- which design am I supposed to "trust". It doesn't work logically for me.

I'll await some empirical reports on slicing and rolling with the ridged paddles because there's more to the sport than a forward stroke.
