Recently purchased a royalex tandem. I'd been looking for this model for some time and jumped on the boat without looking at it well enough. (It was getting dark, I was supposed to be someplace else already, and, uh, the sun was in my eyes?) So after speeding back to where I was supposed to be, it hit me. What had been nagging at me was that the canoe didn't seem to have the right amount of rocker. At home the next morning daylight and a straight board confirmed the fear that the poor little thing was slightly hog backed.
A foam pillar under the yoke takes out the minor hog back, but the canoe still doesn't seem to have the expected rocker.
Will pulling the gunnels in by shortening the yoke likely increase or decrease rocker? Any other thoughts for increasing rocker?
This boat will likely just get some tlc and be sold for what I've got in it if I can't get the rocker back, because that was what had me focused on this model to begin with.
