All of the information was riveting. It was hard to pull myself away from the sites. One link to the next was addictive.

The last one http://www.nfb.ca/film/aviron_qui_nous_ ... ementaire/ is in French and begins with the author pivoting his canoe in place while being on one side of the craft. It then goes on to show how he manuvers the craft by positioning himself on one side and paddling from only one side to manuver in a straight course.

I learned alot from the sites, thanks guys!!!!

Lots of interesting places to revisit.
