In Response To: Re: Sure, blame the whale... ()

: I used to do a bit of singlehanded canoeing back before I learned
: that there were such things as sea kayaks, and I frequently
: practiced capsizing and clambering into the canoe without
: touching the bottom. There is quite a trick to learning how to
: do this (at least it was for me) and I never had to try it in
: waves. Also, my canoe was outfitted with air bags so it wasn't
: swamped when I flipped it upright. Without airbags, forget about
: it. Without a drysuit and swimming with a (presumably) swamped
: canoe, I'm sure I wouldn't have faired any better.

This guy did not know how to swim! That would make for a challenging self rescue. http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100423/NEWS/4230335/-1/NEWS01
