Hi Kurt:

I very much agree that "Sea Kayaker's Deep Trouble" is a good read. There is no such thing as too many ways to recover. However each one needs to be practiced.

However, in my opinion the best way to get out of trouble is to stay out of trouble in the first place. This requires one to know their limitations and have a very good idea when conditions age going to change. Toward this end I'd suggest more reading. "Fundamentals of Kayak Navigation" by David Birch, The "Coastal Kayaker's Manual" by Randel Washburne and "Sea Kayaking" by John Dowd.

Happy Paddling
