Re: Close quarter maneuvering in a swift current

the Delaware has a very quick current but it's very deceptive to most that don't know it. I've read 6 mph ground speed with my gps just going with the flow and no motor.
I'm slowly learning to use spring lines.. seems like few people ever think of them as a tool.
