  The term is heel, not lean
  Posted by: kayamedic on Feb-13-13 10:22 PM (EST)

In this case semantics can be important. I told someone to lean the boat once. The person got "lean" and did not get "the boat". When they leaned over, they got very wet.

Heeling is tough sitting; you do have to keep your torso vertical..parallel to tree trunks.

Its far easier kneeling. However that's a long race for kneeling.

The boat tilts, you do not.
