PACK­ING AND BAL­ANCE

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Travel Gear -

Try to keep the weight of both pad­dlers and gear bal­anced in the cen­ter, or just back of the cen­ter, of the boat. High stacks of gear raise the cen­ter of grav­ity and make the boat un­wieldy, so pack low. Don’t tie any­thing down; if the boat rolls, it could cause it to sink or tan­gle up one of your pad­dlers.
