Another problem could be that they're using double-bladed kayak paddles on a canoe, which doesn't give them the proper angle to paddle with their backs and really get the torso rotation they need to push that boat. Also that canoe was built with both seats too close to the center, which messes up the balance of the whole boat by putting too much of the weight towards the front. That makes it harder to steer (you should be dragging the majority of the weight, not pushing it because that renders corrective strokes useless).
Gosh! I'm already queering the comics and translating the comics, do I have to teach them how to canoe now?
