Well they do in unison with the knees [see post 2.1]

After practising with switching from one rail  [left or right side of kayaks hull] to another in an eddy the easiest way of getting onto the rail without thinking about the knees is to look and lift the opposite knee to the direction you are looking.

Drive the boat by looking where you wish to go,this will switch your bodyweight onto correct side. On a ferry glides look at the other other bank a little upstream, to break into current and go downstream look that way.
