I've been swimming in St Regis a lot over the years and have never had a leech on me. I've seen them attached to the bottom of the canoe when I go to do a carry though. I think that's how they travel...

Just search for 'Werner paddle fit guide' and that should get you started. You need to know if you will be using your paddle 'low angle' or 'high angle'. I'm pretty sure you would prefer the 'low...

Either would work. The double bladed paddles are faster and just about anyone with no experience can get a canoe to go forward with a double bladed paddle. I found that I like the single blade paddle...

Different strokes for different folks. Double paddling can definitely be leisurely and a single bladed paddle can give you a workout! Joe will help with the seat and paddle. Lots of paddle choices....

Thanks Jason!
I'm not as tall as Zach, I'm only 6'5"! And I'm only about 180 lbs so maybe I'll be ok. I checked with Hilary Russel (the author of Skin-on-Frame Double Paddle Canoes) and he suggested...
