My partner and I keep switching positions. Bow-person leans back just before running aground on a low place on the dam. Bow hops out and pulls the canoe up as much as possible. Now since the canoe is resting on the dam it is easy for the stern-person to walk/crawl over gear to the bow. The former bow-person continues to pull the canoe over the test of the dam and then hopping into the strern position. This works great for plastic canoes less for fiberglass, and ok for aluminum. Obviously not so good for wood or canvas.
