Poling, Lining & Paddling: Necessary Expedition Canoe Skills

Lining An Embacle

Remote trips, especially solo, aren’t safe or even possible without solid canoe skills; poling, lining, and paddling. On the Bonaventure I poled the upper section, lined ledges, and as shown here, lined through the ’embacles’ (french for log jams). As this was just a short drop inline with the current, I didn’t bother to tie on a lining bridle to pull from underneath the boat. You should learn these advanced skills before venturing off the beaten path.
