situation with a strong current. The difficulty is in dealing with a victim who is in a panic. Ideally you would throw them some flotation so other than carying a throw ring on your deck all the time I don't know how you could be better prepared. I don't think a paddle float would have enough bouyancy to calm someone in a panic.
Sounds like you did well for having to make snap decisions.
