Platt met freestyle expert, Karen Knight, at an LL Beans event. Upon invitation Karen agreed to try one of Platt's canoes in Wiscasset Harbor. Though Karen seemed a little indifferent about the experience, Platt was very surprised to see how quickly she could spin the canoe around in the water - and without capsizing it! Her turns and stunts happened faster than the camera could fire. Below is a sequence of images that sort of demonstrates some of her freestyling.

One thing is for sure - if you get into a canoe with someone who banks up on one foot and one knee with a firm vertical grip on the paddle - you'd better hang on!
