  Dead Level
  Posted by: plaidpaddler on Feb-11-13 5:12 PM (EST)
 

Dead level is my preference. A half bubble bow light is ok, but not bow down. The Jensens have no rocker and the 18' is not the best choice for a tight stream. Especially a glass hull with two full sized paddlers.
Practice heeling the canoe to the outside and try to stay in the deep water on the outside of the bends. Cutting across the shallow flats on the insides will put you into the suckwater and you will waste a lot of energy keeping up your speed. That will add up over 28 miles.
The Baldpaddler has a lot of experience in the 18 Jensen with a BIG partner on just the water you describe.
