Canoe-Over-Canoe Rescue (Article #7)

Rating: ***

This article explains the steps on how to do the canoe-over-canoe technique to put a canoe that got flipped upside down back to it's proper position

The article gives 6 basic steps on how to do it properly and effectively. It starts off with the first step being to make sure that the paddlers in the canoe are safe. The second step is to take the flipped over and slide it perpendicular onto the middle of the boat. Now, while sitting in the boat, flip the canoe over as if you had just finished portaging and were putting the canoe into water. Now the canoe should be right side up instead of upside down. The fourth and fifth step follow as such. Carefully place the canoe back into the water without tipping yourself. Take your time, there's no need to rush. Now hold the canoe steady while the other person who tipped it climbs into the canoe. The final step is to make sure she is 100%, hand her the paddles and equipement she may have dropped when she tipped over and be on your merry way.

  1. At this point Rolex has offered watches with replica watches uk ceramic colors in black, green, blue, and brown. What will be next? Choosing between the Rolex GMT Master II and Submariner can be a difficult replica watches uk choice. Both watches are 40mm wide, with similar dials and cases. In many ways their prices overlap, and this new ref. 116710BLNR GMT Master II watch is about 550 Swiss Francs more than the Submariner Date replica watches ref. 116610LN (reviewed here). According to Rolex, the price premium for the new two-tone black and blue bezel is about 1,000 Swiss Francs (CHF) more replica watches uk than the standard ceramic bezel. The GMT of course has a second timezone (third if you count the rotating GMT scale on the bezel), while the Submariner has greater water resistance and the fantastic Glidelock deployant system on the replica watches uk bracelet. Choosing this new GMT Master II or Submariner Date can be a tough decision if you can only choose one.
