  Interesting ideas

I watched a video on youtube where this guy was trying to get back into a sink after he purposely flipped it over it was almost comical he worked and worked and had someone help him and they finally just quit filming. I watched two fellows in person flip a sink they were playing but I watched to see how much trouble they had. I noticed that the boat when it was flipped took on an enormous amount of water so much so that after several tries they gave up and swam it to the boat ramp about 100' away. I have lean a good ways to see the stability of my SOT and discovered that it would be difficult to flip it however things happen and in an emergency bad things suddenly get complicated in a hurry. Also if you try and your not fully committed to the flip your mind won't let you go beyond the point of no return. A lot of things could happen for the worse like being intangled in leashes and things that are in the boat. So in light of all the good ideas it would be a good thing to try in a controlled event and also with the equipment to see how bad the normal equipment hampers you. Thanks for all the comments you never know if someone reading this may pull a good idea from it that will help some day thanks again!
