I don't know where you got that religious fanatic impression from. I rarely attend church and when I do it is a UU church. They allow one to believe whatever they want, in contrast to many Pnet posters who think they have seen God and now have a responsibility to preach her word.
My post was an attempt at sarcasm directed towards those who rigidly cling to only one type of boat and only one type of paddle, while rewriting the history of recreational paddling to fit their narrow definitions.
As I have posted before, I paddle both canoes and kayaks. I used single blades before a shoulder injury/reconstruction eliminated using them. I used double blade paddles in pack canoes for decades and now am limited to using only double blade paddles in both canoes and kayaks by the mentioned shoulder reconstruction. It is not a religious decision, just an adaption to be able to continue the paddling have enjoyed all my life.
