Great story to learn from.

---- No matter how good you are or how good you think you are. Unexpected things can happen out there, kayak fishing is a risky business.-----

I had a few times in the past, show up at LJ in early morning , look at the surf , think and think over, go home and sleep more... wait for a better day.

Life is more important than fishing ( or hooping ).

Bad situation…in hindsight maybe you should not have went. I also look at it from this point. You practiced re entry so you had a plan for the flip over. You had a ladder a PFD etc. You stayed calm under these adverse conditions. You did not go solo and had your partner close for just an emergency like this. Every time we go out its a calculated risk. You know your limits better than we do so in your judgement you went for it. I applaud you for your familiarization with your rig, how you coped with the serious situation, and the contingencies you had in place. A side note I always carry a hand pump to dewater the bilge just incase. I would have just lifted the cockpit hatch and pump the water out from there instead of opening the coffin. Good job with the swim and good job with the bugs. Live and learn.

Those inflatable PFDs are a hoot, aren't they? Pow! Wow, epic share. Getting back on the PA was no easy deal if you had to strip. Like Zed says, good thing it wasn't cold out.

What's your PA ladder look like?

Quite an experience and that's just nuts going out in that kind of condition. Experience pays off but then glad you both made it back safely to share the epic adventure with us.

Very happy to hear your OK.

Though we've never met, I look forward to your reports and you 'banter' with Jorge!
For God's sake be more careful.
Thanks for sharing. This should serve to remind the rest of us to not over estimate our abilities or underestimate "POSEIDON".
btw: don't you carry a bilge pump? (curious)
Sincerely,
FFY

Yes I do carry a bilge pump, I had it out on deck with me that night. It was a westmarine bilge pump, it doesn't float. Like I said in a previous post it was one of the first things that sank to the bottom.

For anyone in need of a "bilge pump", I got mine at the 99cent store. It is really a kids toy water gun to be used in a swimming pool. I actually needed to use it about a month ago while fishing under the Coronado bridge when the leak in my yak became apparent. I worked like a champ and on top of that, it floats! Thanks to Andy for patching me back up. Great story for us to read. Glad everything turned out OK.

Thanks for sharing and we're glad to hear your here to tell us and remind us of safety issues. Someone mentioned the ladder cracking the PA, did it? And will you go back to using the same style of PDF? Would a different style still been in the way and have to be jettisoned?

No the PA did not crack from the ladder. That was frank... if you haven't picked up on it yet...Frank just happens to be an idiot.

The self inflating PFD is good probably not the best one to use on a kayak...although I did appreciate the fact that it inflated for me at the right time...it's probably more better suited to be used in a boat. Now a manually inflated one would probably be better for everyday use...

Would a different style been in the way? I guess it would depend upon the person...for example a small skinny guy probably wouldn't have a problem...but a big fat guy like me just might have one.

There's something about a rough ocean with rolling swells and whitecaps. Add to the mix the darkness and most of us are definitely way out of our comfort zone.

Glad you made it in uninjured and thanks for posting. It helps to visualize what you went through and for us to think what we would have done in that situation.

Stay safe.

good read. glad you had a buddy with you and are back safe with bugs.

i flipped my pa 12 in the bay and it was no fun. if i didnt have help i would have not been able to flip it back upright.
lesson learned.
i too made a PA ladder in the back (i only used rope without the pvc/aluminum rung) and i use my game clip on a rope that is attached to one of the sides rail that will stretch across the mid section so i can use to flip it upright.
theres no way *my arm can reach the opposite side rail to flip it.
get a hand pump people (no matter what yak you have)! the pa will fill up with water with the hatches closed. the front hatch does not seal well enough while upside down to keep out water.

be safe
