to effectively body ferry at least to an eddy before something bad comes up..so some swim technique is needed solo.
Its unfortunately not always just floating feet first down the river before there is a calm pool.
And if you have a hand occupied with paddle and rope,swimming is a little more difficult.
Rivers are another game. I feel safer paddling lakes but rivers always have surprises.
Just as in EMS, you plan for the worst and hope for the best. Paddling is not much different.
