Re: Boating Story
From the descriptions in the article it appeared that the canoe was somewhat overloaded. The author mentioned it having minimal freeboard. The paddler came across as being a generally nice guy, hanging on as best he could while suffering from a variety of problems. One or several of them - sickness, tiredness, darkness, bad weather, poor judgement - may have combined to end his trip. Or he may have decided to go find Tracy. Swift passage, Dick Conant.
