I guess I did say "boat" instead of kayak. My son and I were in a tandem kayak, first time on the river with it together. I've run that stretch in a single kayak before, and we've run it together in tandem inflatables, so I wasn't concerned. But, this boat is longer and less stable, my son was in front and got a little scared on the corner rapids. I caught a weird angle, misjudged it and we tipped and took a swim. Because I needed to make sure he was safe first, I let the boat go a ways downstream before going after it. I caught it, but it was to heavy and I couldn't pull it to shore on my own. It eddied out downstream, and my boat was alone long enough for someone to go through my hatches and take my wallet and keys...but left the shoes and snacks where they were.
