Glen, yup, I was there in the other double paddle RF - now you know who I am. Classification of this canoe is a problem that Brian told me about. Joe is not very happy about it either. On my one good day (the day Bob did not paddle) I finished about 15 minutes behind smokin' Joe. I would maybe like to go with single blade next year - I think I can efficiently do less hit-switch stroke (it drives me nuts) than I saw you and most other C1's doing as you passed me with Bob on USL.
