Garffin is on a distinguished road
I have used my pfd to repel down on a few occasions. Some of the creeks in western North Carolina are very steep and getting to them is sometimes have the fun. Yes my PFD is rated so as you can pull me out of a rapid, from out of a undercut rock, from being trapped under a fallen tree or just pull me up! So it is a harness of sorts. I wish I had a pic of it. Its funny I didnít even bring it with me on my trip from RI to Md. When I go home this Jan I will get it and use it on board. Dan

Yes this me hand paddling with my ole micro 240 in the winter with a rescue pfd on [/IMG]
