That might work for you but it probably won't work for most people, especially when crammed into a playboat.
I broke my neck in my playboat in the ocean 2 1/2 years ago. My arms were totally paralyzed from the shock to my spinal cord and I was STUCK in my boat. My legs were still functional because the break was at C4/C5 where the arm nerves come out. It is super rare to get only your arms paralyzed but it happened to me. It is called a core shock and the paralysis lasted for part of a day. I was unable to masturbate for 2 full weeks.
There was no way out. My life depended on it and I still couldn't get out. Couldn't pop my skirt and I was upside down holding my breath for a LONG time.
I finally gave up struggling and just decided to conserve oxygen so I would get a few extra minutes of life, staring at that grab loop under water in front of my face. I was drowning for sure and my neck was so jacked. I decided to try to die without sucking in any water.
Thankfully it was in SoCal so there were lots of beach houses around and someone ran out of their house and saved me after noticing my boat sloshing around in the surf. I was the only one in the water so no help there. Oops.
