Are you the Mark with whom I paddled in Corpus Christi, with Ken J., a number of years ago? Do you still use your Mariner?
Anyway I watched the VanDoren video some years ago and recall that he emphasized a very low stroke with knuckles scraping the gunwales. Nowadays, most video I see does not show such a low stroke. It is much easier to get a high rate with my short wing than with my longer GP.
