    My 2016 Outback has a bunch of factory fitted foam blocks inside the hull especially around the seat, and sides...

    From the video, looks like the following items can be handy.

    1. Rope
    2. Something to remove water - container, pump, etc.

    Holy schmokes! Seeing a guy sit on the bow of the Outback was insane! Glad it worked out guys. What an adventure.

    What I learned:
    Inspect the kayaks (mine and buddy's) thoroughly for cracks and cables.
    Bring a charged Marin VHF Radio, a rope/twine, Hobie Mirage Drive repair kit and tools
    keep all kinds of temporary kayak repair materials (Duct seal, Duct tape, electrical tape, wire, wire cutter, pliers, rudder cable) in the vehicle so that I can fish again
    I always check for the water in the hull very often. and I have buckets under the center hatch.

    I always carry rod top repair kit with gas lighter in the tackle bag - not a safety item but is important.

    Nice going on the rescue. Awesome that it all worked out fine.
    I joke around with a buddy of mine at work about "un-manly" things that guys do. For example: It is unmanly for two dudes to ride a motorcycle or jetski with one dude sitting on the back and the other dude on the front operating the motorcycle.
    I got a chuckle wondering if it is "un-manly" for 2 dudes to ride on a Hobie.

    We too joked about being "un-manly" briefly. I comforted myself by thinking that as long as two men carry fishing rods while sitting on a kayak, they are not un-manly.
    On the way back near the beach, when I saw two women wearing bathing suits on kayaks, I purposely took video of them to put them into the fishing log video. On the video you can clearly see that I (who took the video of women) was staring at the women. I am proud of that for the record.

    LOL... Always good to document in writing or video! In a safety/survival event, there isn't a thing as "un-manly"...

    Soon, withing a few weeks, Snagged Liners will fish CHSP (Cape Henlopen State Park, DE) for Tog. I've been trying to go there but the water temp has been low. The water temp got back to 46 F today. Togs will bite at the inner wall now. But the bites will be scarce. You may join Snagged-liners who live in MD and PA.

    +1 on the pool noodles got a leak at blackwater this weekend 2 miles from the launch. Kayak was completely full but I was still stable because of noodles.
