maneuver in whitewater, your weight needs to be at the pivot point of the boat. If you're there, you'll still have enough "cab forward" reach to get good acceleration, and also (somewhat depending on the boat) to ditch your J stroke. I can accelerate my boats straight ahead with a single stroke and no correction at all.
