If paddles are not perfectly synchrionised they can set up a resonance and the vessel starts to rock from side to side. This rocking can increase until the vessel capsises.

This is exactly what happened with the marine casulalty being referred to and is why the rules in the UK were changed to ban independant control.

One of the rare occasions where the authentic solution is actually the easier one!!
