Awesome tips, thank you!!

Yeah I've paddled this section before, but in the wide, stable rec boat. I'm a strong swimmer, but the temp of the water concerns me. Good tip for getting geared up and going in, I may have to do that.

I was thinking about "practicing" in the yard before going out. I have two spray skirts... one is a lightweight summer one, the other is a neopreme. I figured I'd bring the lightweight one. I saw one of the self-rescue videos about how to get the skirt off, and thought I would try setting all that up in the yard, tipping the thing over, and try it.

I have yet to make any kayaking hookups here locally, except for one local group I'm going out with on Saturday. We're paddling from Independence to Salem (12 miles).. should be fun. I'm debating which boat to bring. Probably the rec boat, I dunno.

Thanks again!

Rob
