  Bring a bailer
  Posted by: booztalkin on Dec-11-12 11:09 PM (EST)
 

GPs drip a lot. It's gonna be a wet ride.

To my way of thinking, there's no point in using a GP in a canoe, and the mechanics of the stroke will be all screwed up in a craft with the beam and higher paddling position of a canoe. The GP is my preferred blade for kayaking, but I wouldn't consider using it in the canoe.

It may well be that I just don't know don't know the GP stroke. So perhaps I should rephrase: "to my way of paddling, there's no point..."
