  SIT on TOP easy exit and entry
  Posted by: FrankNC on Dec-06-12 6:41 PM (EST)
 

It is not like getting up from the ground or a low seat if you do it right.

Entry

1 Start in knee deep water.
2 Face out from the side of the cockpit.
3 Sit down
4 Swing your legs out.

Exit

1 Start in knee deep water.
2 I mean it. push the boat back out to knee deep water or it will be really hard.
3 Swing both legs out to one side.
4 Stand up.

Sit on tops are much easier to enter or exit than canoes or most any other boat.

The biggest problem folks have is trying it in shallow water, because it is like getting up of the ground. Old folks have a hard time getting up off the ground.

The cockpit rim gets in the way if you try this with a sit inside.
