But it moved along right well. Maybe there should be a new racing class set aside for such color schemes? Or maybe just a "most creative color scheme" class of canoe competition.
There's a guy I run into up here on the Wisconsin sometimes who has a dark red/forest green/gray maple leaf camo pattern aluminum that he often carries a bicycle in the front of. I see him fishing in the Lone Rock area. He solos it well. It might rival the Ugly Bug in the "most creative color in a canoe" category. There's another aluminum canoe I sometimes see in Madison that's all done up in a WWII Luftwaffe winter camo scheme. That's a contender also.
As far a racing goes, I still hold that it doesn't matter what color the canoe is. What you have to do is load down the front so the stern rides high like those drag race funny cars. That way, like them, you're always paddling downhill. That way you'll go real fast.
