  A few tricks I learned
  Posted by: Jaybabina on Feb-10-13 10:04 AM (EST)
 

If you get the rec boat up on it's side a large portion of the water will drain out without the conventional lifting of a bulkhead kayak. Then grab the stern end and lift that which is lighter than the bow to drain that. Than as the water is rolling around, you try to quickly get it across your deck. You try to do it quickly so all the water doesn't roll to the stern end. And when you pick it up, you do it sideways so the only water that makes if to the stern can't be higher than the cockpit side opening.

Even with all that it's still real tough.
