Nice looking boat. The person in front is the power; the rear is where you steer. Yes, you provide some power but your job in the back is to maintain or redirect your course. That boat looks to have a very flat bottom so it will be a bit more squirrelly than one with more keel. I've canoed most of my life but I just consider myself an amateur paddler. Maybe hit up @dustinchromers for some real advice. Congrats on the new craft. You're developing quite the stable; well done!
