Ode to the Club Boater - whitewater river kayaking carnage video by tgerencer1.
Ode to the Club Boater video by tgerencer1 22oct2010. Please make good or bad comments about the humor at YouTube where the video was originally posted.
Once the survival of the victim is assured I'm most interested to use carnage videos or photos as a learning experience for whitewater river boating safety skills. Should the boater have scouted, or portaged or run a different line through the rapid? Did the boater do the right things for self-rescue? Did the boating group do the right things to ensure a safe and efficient assisted rescue if necessary?
Please add comments to let us know your favorite whitewater boating carnage videos and the lessons, if any, that you learned from them.

I am an old greybeard boater who still happily wears a Protec helmet in my profile picture and on the river whenever I'm able to get out there. Some of us can get a little light-hearted chuckle from the video even though some of the humor is definitely not politically correct. Anybody who has serious issues with the humor in the video should join the ongoing discussion on that topic at YouTube where the video was originally posted.
