  I've had a kayak ripped out of my hands.
  Posted by: johnysmoke on Jan-13-13 5:41 PM (EST)

Playing in a spot where the current took me one way, the wind and waves the boat the opposite direction. The boat took off rather quickly, and although I managed to grab it one or two times,even the smallish breaking waves we were playing in were strong enough to pull the boat out of my grasp. I didn't have a chance to grab an end toggle, which probably would have been the best thing to hold onto, the deck lines proved problematic. Luckily my paddling cohorts were able to help out, getting me and the boat back to the beach.
