I noticed that even when upside-down, the boat and I were not moving anywhere. I was hoping the extra "stuff" dangling from the boat (my upper body) would allow the downstream current to grab and shove us away but it did not. So I wet-exited. I guess that hole was deeper than I thought.
I've heard of putting arms overhead (while capsized) to try to go down deeper in hopes of hitting the downstream current below. Sounds like a recipe for injury and I don't ever plan to try that.
