rescued kayakers comment
Posted by Adam Bolonsky on Jun 13, 2006
Hate to keep beating a worn drum, but the two guys who were last week rescued off Massachusetts by Coast Guard helicopter and rescue swimmer have a long post on their experience at http://www.nspn.org/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=list&forum=DCForumID5&conf=DCConfID1
You'll note that at the bottom of their report they reiterate how CRUCIAL decklines were, and how much of a hindrance their bow toggles were because of inadequate design.
The guys were flailing around in very rough waters for more than two hours before they got picked up.
