Keeping your paddle in the water provides additional stability.  Rest your buttocks against the seat and spread your knees wide.  Important changes have also resulted from adapting strokes to the technology of lighter, more responsive boats.  Strive to paddle efficiently, and you'll be able to paddle longer and harder.  Then concentrate on grasping the paddle gently.  Hands too close together provide too little leverage during strokes, and hands too far apart limit your reach away from the boat, which is important during turning strokes.

Swivel your top hand until the blade angle is parallel to the centerline to continue the stroke.  Position the blade in the water, parallel to the centerline, between your knee and hip near the canoe pivot point.  Flatten the blade to align with the hull, your top thumb pointing backward, toward the stern.  Face the top of the paddle outward.  Place the paddle blade under the boat.  Rest the heel of your shaft hand on the gunwale and the shaft against the gunwale.  Rotate your torso toward the paddle.
