  The ultra short OC-1s have their uses

and offer their delights, but I have no use for a canoe that can't acquit itself properly on a slalom course. Probably it doesn't take a 13 foot boat to do that, but it doesn't take much less.

I do a sort of pry at the stern for corrections, unweighting the bow at the same time. I just don't actually pry off the gunwale. It just isn't necessary to do so if the paddle is angled and held back where it belongs.
