Well, I do not mean to defend the guys - and maybe I am being stupid here - but I often leave my life jacket in my yak when I ditch the boat on a sandbar.

On an incoming tide the water can rush up on your yak with surprising speed. The fact that an unloaded yak can float away in 4 inches of water doesn't help.

Looks like I should start wearing my SOSpensers whenever I ditch my yak on a sandbar.
