I learned today that a composite Wildfire paddles to shore quite reasonably while filled to within a few inches of the gunnels. At least that is, if you get down to the pool before you fill it too much.
I'd have thought it much more likely to roll over with that much water on board.
Erik OTOH was reminded of the folly of side surfing the rubber Wildfire/Yellowstone in ice water.
I chose not to duplicate his experiment with the composite as I'm quite certain the result would have been the same.
I'm new to facespace, maybe folks without it could tell me if they can see these pictures?
