Hand of God rescue
Posted by: Mallin on Aug-13-08 10:59 AM (EST)
I need advice in the following scenario. I have a rather narrow sea kayak (17 ft) and am 5'6", 135 lbs. My husband has a similar length, rather wide, sea kayak and is 6'2" and 200 lbs. I can't (and I've tried lots of techniques) make the Hand of God work. I'm too small. His boat is too wide. I can't get a grip. He is too heavy.
So, suppose the "victim" has a heart attack and is upside down. What are my options? Try to get him released and out of the boat so I can get his face into the air and tow him as best I can?
How does one best handle such an emergency?
