I plan to ware suplex pants and put on my waders after beaching my yak. Wareing waders in a yak is asking for trouble in my opinion. I had a close call this past summer . Hit my head on a rock had stocking foot waders on and was luckly to get to shore to save myself. Let me tell you from experience. Things happen so fast when you are in trouble you don't have time to think about anything but saving yourself. The swimming pool wader test is fine for a slip in a stream, but it is a different story if your yak is upsidedown and you are off shore treading water.

Good point FishHawk. The more I read it seems that bottom line is you can swim in waders ok - provided you are conscious. Achieving a Kayak self rescue may be a different story.

Joev, almost missed your post! Those are some pretty impressive stats! Last season I made the Chatham trip about 10 times from May through August. It is a long hike but it was worth it!

I'm looking forward to next season. Should be picking up a yak around March time then sign up with Ms Kayak down in Norwalk for some lessons. Should be ship shape by the time things get going. It would be great to hook up with you guys.
