Straightedge2 Paddling Question

Post by Vandal996 » Mon Aug 18, 2014 1:23 pm

We had our maiden voyage in my SE2 this weekend and I was smart enough to leave the wife to her own plans. While paddling down a slow moving creek with two rigid singles my friend and I looked like a a couple of drunken morons. We could not keep this thing moving in a straight line. I am more experienced and thought steering from the rear would be our best bet. This was not the case. I told him to try a long sweep stroke to change the direction but he did not grasp the concept. We wound up changing places and using a sweep stroke starting ahead of the bow we finally found a way of moving down the river in a semi straight line.
Do any of you SE2 owners find yourself doing the same thing?
