Florida Sea Base Out Island Adventure 2022

Recommended Posts

All good information from others in this post.

One "conditioning" item that I would recommend is that you have to get in and out of the war canoes very often.  Having all the scouts and especially adults being able to get themselves into the canoe on their own without needing someone to help pull them in is really helpful.  Picture three 120 pound scouts trying to pull their 250 pound scoutmaster out of the water over the gunwale into the canoe...

A good way to practice would be to find a swimming pool where there is about a 2 foot distance between the pool water level and the deck.  Make sure that everyone can pull themselves out of the water and onto the pool deck.  Some of it is related to strength and weight, but there is also a lot of technique to it as well.
