  Sounds nice in theory, but when I paddle
  Posted by: ezwater on Jun-18-13 7:31 PM (EST)

tandem, I can control the canoe better from the stern, and the only thing I expect from the bow paddler is spotting rocks that I may not have seen.

The notion about the bow paddler being the leader will only work when the bow paddler is a) plenty competent and b)the stern paddler feels that s/he can trust the bow paddler's decisions.

When I have paddled stern the person in the bow has been a relative novice. There's no way I could rely on that person to make executive decisions.
