Crack me up....
Dude, are you being serious right now? I think I know the who that you refer to! He told me the same story, then he peeled out of the eddy, took a sick line, flipped, thrashed then swam. My attempt to assist said boater proved unnecessary as a spectactular self-recuse was witnessed by many. It appeared to me that a quick poggie snatch made the paddle grab effortless. So my conclusion is even if they didn't help the pop-up camper towing boater with his roll, he swam that rapid in style and a self-rescue poggie snatch is always a welcome sight.
ps..Adgeiser, maybe someday you'll be as cool as he! One can hope huh?
