not an expert, but I would like to throw out an experience we had that made for a fun ride because of flex.
We were on a fifteen day trip in the artic circle on the Noatak river and were using Ally pack canoes.
They are a neat canoe for remote expeditions and come in a back pack they you put together out of aluminum struts and rubberized canvas.
When we first assembled them, I had my doubts about them, but by the end of the trip I was sold on them.
The Flex part was the fun part. Every time we would go through WW rapids, the whole canoe would flex either in the bow, middle or stern as we went over each wave.
All we heard from other boats was a bunch of yee-hawing as we flexed over the wave trains.
