Also, standard drill for emptying a gear-loaded canoe is to get it to the bank and roll it. Gear removal may not be necessary.

A hand pump will help remove water from a gear-loaded boat, and rolling will remove the last water.

If a canoe is too delicate to be rolled with gear in it, that canoe shouldn't have been used on that river. Trippers and Alumacraft, no problem.
