I've got two DVD's made by Shelly, bunch of videos on each. She does a nice job putting it all together, I really like watching her run class V/VI stuff, somebody's got to do it, and it's NOT going to be me!

Another reason to row in the front of a light cat w/o gear - fewer back enders. (A back ender is when the read of the tubes get caught in a hole, this sucks the rear tubes down bringing the front of the boat up, until the boat flips upstream or the boat launches in the air.) More weight in the front equals a longer lever arm and a lower chance of flipping. Sotat makes one of their tube models with a diminishing profile towards the back to help avoid this issue.
