The jensen 18 is an old design. If racing this canoe in shallow water trim it atleast 2" bow down when the canoe is not moving. When moving the bow will rise up. A very strong team would run it more bow down. It will be easier to turn is it is not stern heavy. This canoe has little rocker by running it bow down it will free the stern for easier steering. I have been racing canoes for 45 years.
