Also, stankboat, sounds like you 'bout lost your life yesterday
Yeah that was a funny one
Thanks for all the helpful advice. I plan to take a swiftwater rescue course at the beginning of the season, then practice swimming in a controlled environment, and try not to swim when it is not by my own will. I have been stepping it up this past season, and want to continue
this coming season. I agree with the person that said not to rely on your buddies to save you in class V. I was had a boater tell me when boating class V you are all alone, because there is only so much, people can do to save you in the event of a swim, pin, or entrapment.
