  my two cents
  Posted by: mrmannerz on Nov-15-12 5:16 PM (EST)
 

In a canoe you would put the stronger paddler in front, as long as the other paddler is experienced and the canoe can be balanced. In whitewater, the better river-reader goes up front where the view is unobstructed.

I had a double kayak, and pretty much the same idea applies. If the second paddler is inexperienced or unsure of themselves, the better all-around paddler goes in the stern where they can watch and coach the other.
