want to be just a smidge bow light. Canoes designed more for general purpose and less for speed may have more bow than stern rocker.

But one rarely seen boat, the 17 foot Bluewater Freedom, has more stern rocker, and is known for both decent cruising speed and for maneuverability on twisty channels, which it manages by its loose stern being able to swing wide a bit on turns. Not a full skid, just a controlled slide.
