exactly the run i was hoping for, but like those passengers you described, i got spooked by the ledge hole, even though i knew i wanted to stay on that left side of bubble line and skirt the ledge hole on the right side. O well! live nd learn! cant wait for next time!

The bowman was pretty slow to recover. It points out the need to train everyone in your boat how to row.

I have only run Vulcan once in a commercial rig. I was all the way forward on the bow, holding onto to two straps. The captain overshot his eddy line and punched through it, causing the 6 ton raft to swing wildly with amazing G forces. No one got flung off the raft, but it was the biggest hydraulic force I have ever felt.
