Single paddle technique

Is this proper technique?
I usually do three strokes per side then switch but this guy has a larger blade than I use and so maybe steering requires just one stroke.
It just seems inefficient.

He really needs to work on his J-stroke.

about cross winds, maintaining course could be an issue.

I won't comment on technique, but the operator has got to be a paddler, because paddlers know when to improvise and this is an example.

There are a lot of better ways to paddle than 3 and switch, but this is not one of them.

hook those hydraulics up to a pole and perhaps a hydraulically operated duck's foot if the bottom's soft... That'll get it there.
You can bet he's properly "strapped in"|

Gotta weld the tracks to the barge. If not you're in the water by the second stroke.
