  I See Your Point

However, my muscles appreciate whatever help they can get from GPE. They don't mind sharing the workload.

And I prefer applying that help straight ahead (with muscles), in the direction of travel, via top hand, and transmitting the resulting opposite and equal force via my bottom arm to the canoe/kayak. You're right, the board doesn't go straight when pushing down, for it should go down, or in the direction of the force.

Anyway, I experimented yesterday paddling with and without GPE, and my muscles preferred the help from GPE.
