Another test-float yesterday. Expanded the envelope to paddling while standing which worked fine. Noted the following:

need a slightly longer paddle..a half crouch kills the back

in order to switch from paddle to rod while standing, need to mount a rod holder on the upper rail of the leaning post, and a paddle holder on each side of the L/P

for quick turns, it is relatively easy to manipulate the rudder control (pseudo-tiller) with the paddle while standing
