I was going to say the same thing, but when I thought about it- isn't hysiding a raft and keeping it upright actually equivalent to rolling a kayak and then righting it? Flipping a raft is surely equivalent to pulling and swimming in a kayak. But a Guide swim from a raft is also equivalent to that, isn't it? This could be interesting...

As I asked before - If I call a paddle stroke three time and the paddler dosen't do it - shouldn't that be a bootie beer or ice cream fine?
And for the record a hyside is most comparable to a high brace. Being a swimmer from a raft is like a flipping in a kayak, and flipping the raft is like a wet exit.
