It should be straight forward enough....I flipped my Old Zodiac (with 20hp Blue Band)off Exmouth Sand Bar years ago and even with a non Boater aboard we mangled to right her...although were dead in the water and had a Tow in..A bit of a shock when it happens if your Not wearing a Dry suit!
A long Bow line (Painter- even better two) will help a lot!
The main thing is to get the wind to aid you ( usually Blowing a bit if you flip!) and be coordinated....and don't hang around that first wave of adrenalin is there to be used...it soon gets really Cold even in the Summer months.[/QUOTE]
We all wear wetsuits when we're at sea. My winter suit is good for several hours in the water, even in January
