Finally found the pics from that trip. Just so you have an idea of the water temperature LOL:Oh yea, I was in a similar situation once while boating down some little rapids, we got wedged in the rocks ... everything in the boat got washed out down the river. Haha
This is my other 'Yak. 18'er (5.5 meters). it floats better when full of water, and I have skirts for it so that is less likely to happen.
