So, in previous posts, you say that you paddled around in the SJIs and now your saying that you did it without proficiency in this technique? That is, to say the least, concerning as this is the LAST DITCH method for solo reentry.
The reason that I advocate not fixing the paddle to your boat using straps or rigging is that if the water is lumpy it can damage your boat or paddle. Try holding it to the aft part of the coaming with your hand that is closest to the coaming. You should be positioned aft of the coaming with your paddle between you and the coaming. Extend the paddle out as far as you can and swim onto the back deck of your boat and then place an ankle onto the shaft. most, if not all, of your weight should be on the boat. As you rotate around always keep contact with the shft of the paddle and keep your eyes glued to the paddle float, the idea being that you'll lean where you look, thereby preventing the yellow rainbow (leaning way from the float causing the paddle float to arc over your head as you capsize again).
