  RIVER HAZARDS
  Posted by: wavetamer on Jun-29-11 9:56 AM (EST)
 

Good points. My very first canoe trip was in the Boy Scouts, on the Brule in Wisc. I was in the bow and went through a third of the rapids backwards. I learned a lot about fast currents, narrowing channels and back paddling on that trip. The issue of hazards and their avoidance should also include assisted rescues. Doubling the problem is obviously not a good thing. It leads me to think that might be a good topic as well...When trying to do "right" turns out wrong" or something similar.

Thanks for your input and work with the Boy Scouts....safe paddling.
