Push on the oars instead of pull. If you're in current, it's easy. If you're going against current, then you'll need to pull.
260cm is probably not going to be enough, but if you can try it cheap, try it. I'll be eager to hear. Most folks I know who use a double bladed paddle on decidedly smaller canoes use a 280cm and don't lower the seat.
