Ignore caspermike, he lives to rail on people if he is not on the water, it seems to make him happy and provides a dramatic counterpoint to those theatrically inclined. Don't want it to be all lovey dovey in here right?

Hey Cityguy, You'll get it...KICK and try getting in from the upstream side of the raft that way you have the current to assist you a little.
Also, practice having someone in the boating assisting in getting you back in. Generally, if you have someone grab your life jacket and dunk you then the momentum helps bob you back up and in...you'll both fall INTO the boat.
sorry edna the upstream side of the boat does not work well in most situations. Tends to push your legs under the boat and make it impossible to get in. FTW??

Yeah kind of like that. But this is your 20 kicks per second scissor kick as in "I am going to do my get on top of the water and walk like Jesus" kick.
Wait a second until the boat is inline with the current. Go to the side and the best is where the tube starts to rise up for the rocker at the front and back, grab ahold of the chicken line on either side of a d ring as close as you can, dunk yourself and on the upsurge do the afore mentioned Jesus kick and you may make it back in.
