because of its increased rocker, but if you kneel close to the center of the boat and use a short stroke, firm catch, it should track well enough without your needing to J stroke except occasionally. I've paddled the boat, the Royalex version which tracks worse than yours, and I didn't notice a need to J. In fact, my complaint about the boat (as a paddler of true whitewater canoes) was that it tracked *too* well.
