Cockpit cover as a safety tool?

It occurred to me yesterday while towing a boat that keeping a kayak cover in the boat could be used to prevent swamping when towing a recovered boat back across to the a swimmer on the opposite bank. Anyone do this?

A cinched skirt will do the trick for anything long distance where you will probably just herd the boat anyways. I think a simple tow across the river wouldn't require a cover.

I've started keeping one in my boat. I got to use it a couple weeks ago. That is, my friends got to use it on my boat
