Agree about canoe/single blade

As it happens, in July, I spent 6 days paddling down the Upper Missouri between Coal Banks and Kipps in Montana. My first canoe trip since 10 days in the Boundary Waters perhaps 35 years ago. My wife and daughter and I had one canoe and a kayak. I used the canoe paddle in both. Very easy to get good rotation with the single blade. But I don't know about a single paddle on the ocean.
The Upper Missouri is quite remote and beautiful, and 2 days would go by without seeing another person or boat. Very remote. We were lucky enough to see a mountain lion. Many eagles.
