We must have different rule books.
In all seriousness, you're right. But I also need to get better PFDs, wet suits, and helmets to learn things the hard way. And also need to raft these things in groups and not worry about following random boats through sticky rapids. And I should probably figure out how to quickly mount my spare oar in case I need to do that quickly in a hairy situation. Lots of to-dos.
