You talk about rock gardens. Must be big rocks in deep water, because otherwise you would trip badly over your pry stroke.

I use a shallow, wedging pry occasionally in the stern. I have taught my wife to use a cross draw in the bow. When paddling solo, I may use a shallow, wedging pry, but my cross draw is so fast and much more accurate and effective.

I guess you can't cross draw in a raft, but when I've guided, I get the "customers" to do what I can't do in the stern.
