  Never level...
  Posted by: openboater on Feb-15-13 4:09 AM (EST)

When you watch a race live or on video, note the hulls are never level. Wind, chop, other boat wakes, and body movements of the racers all keep the hull bouncing. The best racers are usually the ones best and keeping the hull moving as smoothly as possible, but she'll never be flat. Good form goes a long way.

When trimming the canoe for race, one also has to consider other factors: upstream current, downstream current, open water, choppy or wavy conditions, paddler ability, etc. Each situation can benefit from different trim.
