oh gahd-- why do I suddenly feel one of those "Half the paddle, twice the man" debates coming on??
FWIW, I have a paddle buddy who swears up and down he's a C-1'er thru and thru... but when his boys call him up to go run V/ V+, the first
thing he does is toss the single blade and break out the kayak.... I've personally seen it happen, I'm just not supposed to tell anyone about it.
