  Canoe Self Rescue
  Posted by: ricknriver on Dec-19-12 7:30 AM (EST)

With practice, flotation bags, a paddle float & my GP I'm able to self-rescue my low profile 32# WenVag KUL canoe. Just heavy Velcro my long GP w/float to a mid thwart after flipping it back up and bailing/pumping it, remount similar to a kayak, finish bailing/pumping. Takes longer than a yak though to set it up, so must be dressed for time in cold water and may not be able to do it with a heavy boat. Just thoughts. R
