    Default Darwin award?

    So, yesterday we float the upper Kenai, not much fishing, just floating and catching some rays.
    Around the corner I notice a kayaker in the water. His mate is apparently trying to relaunch his kayak......between 2 sweepers. About 2 nanoseconds after launch his mate is swimming, no lifejacket, no dry suit. We help recover his kayak, full of cold, kenai water. We empty his kayak and eventually these guys are on their way again. Still no lifejackets on.

    We floated yesterday as well, and watched a guy in an inflatable canoe go swimming at Princess Rapids. He got himself back into his craft before we could get to him, but man, in 2 trips I've now seen 2 different groups/people go swimming, the relative inexpensive ease in which watercraft are obtained sure seems to be in direct relation to folks who buy em with no real experience.....
