  except canoes and rec kayaks
  Posted by: kayamedic on Feb-06-13 10:59 PM (EST)
 

are different beasts to empty of water. Rec kayaks typically have one bulkhead open, sometimes two. Even if you have a partner in an accompanying boat, your rec kayak if it has one bulkhead will fill with water at the unsealed end and point to the sky. Its very difficult to empty one of those hulls with water.. with two unsealed ends the boat will be level and perhaps underwater, but its still darn near impossible to empty of any water.

Having had to fish people out of capsized rec kayaks twice in calm water nevertheless, it's not an experience I want to engage in again.
