The CH17 is a relatively high-volume boat, so it is harder to roll than many other sea kayaks. However, with a good hip/knee snap and body position, rolling the CH17 is very achievable.

Conceptually, it helps me to think that I am pushing the boat back under me with my knee and hip, with a little help from my paddle to secure my position.
