Maybe you and a buddy overturn a canoe and your paddles are swept downriver by the fast current. Or, maybe you break two paddles in defense of your s’mores against two camp-trolling black bears.

Whatever the reason, if you suddenly find yourself up a creek without a paddle, there is hope.

Check out this entertaining video featuring an innovative way to move a canoe without paddles, electric trolling motor or other means of propulsion. A bit of advice: Before you try this on your favorite pond, lake or river, be sure to remove fishing rods, tackle boxes and anything else of value!

    We used to call this “gunwale jumping”. I can remember hilarious gunwale jumping races at scout camps as a kid. Haven’t thought of it for ages. Thanks for the reminder.
