... "Paddle Your Own Canoe" by the McGuffins. I've tried it in controlled situations and it's incredibly effective. Now all I need to do is paddle enough whitewater for such things to become second nature. Right now, they are NOT second nature. The last time I ended up swimming in a rapid, I hadn't even hit the water before I started thinking "that was a stupid mistake and I really shouldn't be halfway out of my boat right now." I probably need to be in such situations many times before certain things I "know" how to do become automatic.
