  Trim
  Posted by: mcimes on Feb-12-13 9:25 AM (EST)
 

As others have said you want to be perfectly trim or slightly bow up. Also, as others have said, being comfortable leaning near the edge will help you turn a lot. If you can, go out with your partner and get really comfortable near the edge of staying dry. Even take it so far you swamp it a couple times (in a few feet of water). Knowing the limit of your canoe is very helpful.

The Jensen 18 is a great boat and should treat you well. Its very predictable and stable as far as fast boats go, so if you know how far you can lean it will help on a small stream.
