Sea Kayaker Magazine

Murders and Accomplices







Updated May 21, 2012

This was published in Canoe Magazine (by editor-in-chief Dave Harrison, whom I had personally met in Reno at the big trade show), Spring 1993. It is now Canoe and Kayak Magazine, available at most outlets; since it is the major commercial canoe and kayak industry publication, for Canada and America:

(Legal evidence of deadly canoe and kayak fraud, criminal negligence causing mass death, thousands of counts of murder in the second degree and conspiracy.)

Afterwards, the advertising revenues at Canoe (now Canoe and Kayak Magazine) were threatened, as well as the instruction revenues at the American Canoe Association; since all canoe and kayak manufacturers depend on canoe and kayak instructors for their salespersons. These instructors make far more money as a group than the total sales of canoes and kayaks, with profits at only a few hundred dollars on each sale. In a pyramid scam, the American Canoe Association in the US, CRCA and ORCA in Canada, make hundreds of dollars for each course to train Instructors, Trainers, Instructor Trainers, Instructor Trainers Class 1, etc. Since this date the U.S. Coast Guard has documented over 2,000 dead Americans in canoes and kayaks; although any two 10 year old girls can rescue themselves in 5 seconds with 50 cent sponsons they can easily make themselves! No instructors can rescue themselves and paddle fully flooded to shore, rescuing any other victims in the water and moving them to safety at 2 knots, like any 2 ten year old American children below! This is evidence of extreme criminal behavior in America, as perfidious and almost as deadly as Osama bin Laden. Certainly just as cruel!
 

Homemade 50 cent sponsons can be clipped within 5 seconds to any kind of open canoe, sea kayak, recreational kayak, or sit-on-top kayak for foolproof, lifesaving stability: Designed for the same effect as the sponsons used on historic Atlantic and Pacific Ocean crossings by kayak and canoe. Currently there is no means of rescue for any type canoe or kayak, only lies about paddle floats, printed and acknowledged by Sea Kayaker Magazine, and other deadly lies killing approximately 2,000 Americans since Sea Kayaker Magazine and Canoe and Kayak Magazine acknowledged sponsons' superiority for the future of canoe and kayak safety:

Any two Ten Year Old Girls are able to rescue themselves without any instruction or practice (they just clip sponsons onto gunwales in an emergency, within 5 seconds, with 50 cent foam sponsons), then paddle a flooded canoe to shore at 2 knots, even standing up, but normally seated on seats. Both sponsons are normally clipped at both gunwales, like the left sponson, permitting self-bailing of most of the water by leaning to one side. In order to permit total flooding for this picture, it was necessary to clip one sponson 6 inces higher than the other, so water could flow over one gunwale. These girls (or any normal ten year old children) can rescue any other victims in the water, even obese or disabled adults, who only need to crawl over a gunwale, and be paddled to shore at about 2 knots. The canoe weighs at least 2,000 lbs., flooded. Simple: Any suitable buoyancy, like 50 cent foam floats that are clipped onto gunwales in 5 seconds by any two 10 year old girls, who easily rescue themselves and anyone else. Very simple, cheap, 50 cents and a foolproof means of saving themselves, like the universal life rings around any waterfront.

FAST LIFE RAFT

Virtually Any Kind of Buoyancy on the Beam Ends of Any Canoe or Kayak Will Work!

Refer to the Buoyancy Bags of the U.S. Special Forces Kayakers at Fort Devens 1994, or 2,000 years ago in the Arctic:

The book "The Canoe in Canadian Culture" (eds. Jennings, Hodgins, and Small) doesn't quite understand the magnificent and seaworthy history of kayaks and canoes. But it comes close, regarding the Haida canoes and Aleut kayaks, with trade routes over thousands of miles of ocean, matching Polynesian adventures without sailpower.

Page 51 (fig.3) shows "Prehistoric kayak models. Old Bering Sea with double floats", described on page 50 as hunting floats but in the many references to David Zimmerly's QAJAQ, Kayaks of Siberia and Alaska: "If just one baidarka is caught in a storm, then two large inflated bladders are sometimes tied to its' sides. (Davydov 1814:203)"(p.34) Another kayak model with "two sets of double floats fore and aft...Of the two cockpit depressions, the foreward one is small suggesting that a boy sat there." (op.cit., p.53) Good to see this emphasis on safety, from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century, especially for kids. This double float technology also permitted open sea trade routes.

The canoes of the Haida (Nootka etc.) had double floats: "Just across Queen Charlotte Strait...forty Kwakiutls perished...In very rough seas inflated bladders or sealskin floats were tied to the sides as stabilizers." (p.122, Michael Poole, Ragged Islands) Many 19th century missionaries wrote about these "sponson" floats.

It is comforting to reflect on canoe and kayak design as thousands of years of common sense. Canoes and kayaks cannot escape natural threats. Wind can arrive suddenly without clear warning. Canoes and kayaks cannot normally outrun these threats, so they have used strategic flotation for thousands of years, to survive in much colder waters than Polynesia. The floats did not permit normal paddling, like modern Sponsons. But they effectively saved lives."

"Another kayak model with "two sets of double floats fore and aft...Of the two cockpit depressions, the foreward one is small suggesting that a boy sat there."

"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety
and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North
American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea
Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea
Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994
we used Sea Wings with all our rescue boats as back-up flotation/
stability for awashed kayaks needing assistance pumping out in heavy
seas. In addition, IMKP's rescue kayak was fitted with Sea Wings on a
permanent basis which allowed us to be far more stable in possible
rescue operations...Sea Wings dramatically increase re-entry
operations with capsized boats. Indeed, even with heavily loaded boats
(those approaching 1000 lbs.) most paddlers can easily re-enter the
kayak. However the most notable advantage of Sea Wings is with lightly
loaded boats; ie, those kayaks which are far less stable (more tippy)
than fully loaded boats. Recovery operations are far more difficult in
these boats and most students have extreme difficulty in mastering the
necessary techniques. This is compounded in heavy seas. Sea Wings
offers an almost guaranteed method of re-entering a lightly loaded
kayak even in heavy seas. Stability increase in heavy seas. Paddling
in extremely heavy seas is difficult. Sea Wings offer the crews an
additional method of dealing with such sea states. One of the most
dangerous situations a detachment can find itself in is that of towing
a disabled crew with full operational loads in heavy seas at night.
The employment of Sea Wings dramatically increases the safety margin.
In my opinion, this is one of the sponsons' most important
contributions to MAROPS... As an historical footnote it should be
noted that circumpolar kayakers (Greenlanders and Inuit) employed a
similar sponson/ float for stability. It differed significantly though
from Sea Wings in that it was free floating; i.e., there was
apparently no harness system and stability came from pushing down on
the float on the side of the kayak. In addition, during the late 70's
and early 80's we employed a similar system with our commo boats.
Waterproof bags were blown up and hand held to the sides of the kayak
while communication was conducted. The point here is that the idea of
some sort of support on the sides of the kayak for stability is very
old and universal." Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation

Rec.Boats.Paddle posters, in shame and remorse, note that the American
Canoe Association Fraud with the 2 magazines and Mr. Broze below, is
connected to RBP poster Dan, who is apparently threatening me for
attempting to prevent the ACA from murdering more children in canoes
and kayaks: "Maybe this is old news, or maybe no one cares. I found a
posting by the s man, the damnned idiot, with his phone number. That
number shows up on reverse lookup. 705-549-3722 Tim Ingram Gordon Dr
Penetanguishene, ON I say go we teepee his house. -Dan --------------=
Posted using GrabIt =----------------... more » By Dan - Feb 7 - 1
new of 1 message". After 14 years, Mr. Broze and Sea Kayaker Magazine
plainly admit in print that paddle floats cannot rescue anyone from
the water, leaving them to die: "Once your kayak has been stabilized
and pumped out, you should resume paddling only if that appears to be
the best option. Staying in a stabilzed mode might be the best option
if you are far from shore and the conditions are still beyond your
paddling capabilities."

Broze and Sea Kayaker Magazine admit the
paddlefloat cannot get anyone to safety, and also prevents pumping out
according to Broze as well, compromising the planned and deliberate
American Canoe Association fraud to murder about 2,000 Americans in
canoes and kayaks since 1993 (USCG BARD). The ACA fraud has murdered
about 400 American children in canoes and kayaks, but most
rec.boats.paddle posters have normal decency and mental health like
Slim Jim Stuart who stopped this behavior as soon as he realized his
mistakes from my numerous sponsons posts on rbp over a decade ago:
"- Teen peer group pressure to push for extreme runs is enormous, and
the
definition of extreme continues to mount.
- Safety focus in whitewater is nearly non-existent these days, and
role
modeling only goes so far.... I've already had several kids with "off
the course" very close calls and
serious injuries.
How do I rationalize coaching - or not coaching for that matter?
Coaching seems like something worthwhile doing, when I'm doing it.
But what would I tell the parents of a kid who dies "off course?" "
Sea Kayaker Magazine mentions Sponsons for the first time since: "Sea
Wings are simply the best and easiest-to-use self-rescue device on the
market today." Sea Kayaker Magazine, Winter 1993, p.34:

A competent criminal attorney should have advised Mr. Matt Broze and
Sea Kayaker Magazine, on behalf of Canoe and Kayak Magazine, not to
mention sponsons at all, let alone on page 4 of Sea Kayaker Magazine,
February 2012. (Ever since the very decent David Bookbinder left the
American Canoe Association after I had advised him of the criminal
wrongdoings that I had observed.) The U.S. Coast Guard after all used
$26,000 of taxpayer money to conduct a survey regarding sponsons, at
my request of a more effective action: "Federal Register/ Vol. 67, No.
232/ Tuesday, December 3, 2002/ Notices: Kayak/Canoe Sponson Study
"Study conducted in conjunction with the CG Research and Development
Center to study the efficacy of the use of sponsons in canoes and
kayaks. ($26,171)"". At least the U.S. Coast Guard tried to appear
that they were trying to save American lives, but not sure what to do
with a well-organized and deadly cult, intent on the most deadly
canoes and kayaks possible. That was all typical of broken Washington,
D.C., especially during the reign of Bush II.

I have provided plain, clear and obvious evidence of deliberate
endangerment and deaths of American citizens organized by Canoe and
Kayak Magazine and Sea Kayaker Magazine, referring to the letter from
Mr. Harrison that you can read in "Canoe and Kayak Scam Kills 1000
Americans", p.27, sold now on Amazon.com. This scam was organized
within months of Mr. Harrison publishing: "I thought these were a
better idea, and have turned my old paddle float bag into a camera
case." (Dave Harrison, Editor in Chief, Canoe and Kayak Magazine, July
1993.) The death toll of dead Americans in canoes and kayaks is now
around 2,000 on the US Coast Guard database.

Now, in the February issue 2012, p.4, above the "Freya Rides Again"
article, after 18 years, Mr. Broze himself first mentions sponsons in
Sea Kayaker Magazine: "a fixed outrigger paddle float or an inflatable
sponson system will probably work best to stabilize the swamped
kayak."!

When quoting a well-documented and very cruel liar like Mr. Matt Broze
in Sea Kayaker Magazine, it is important to carefully include the
entire context of his sponson reference, in case he is trying to amend
his lies about sponsons over the past 18 years and 2000 American canoe
and kayak deaths, in case he is trying to respond to his reputation in
this webpage, FBI notification on this webpage available by Google
and so on:

"The best stabilization is likely another kayak and kayaker or
two, creating a solid raft by bracing across the deck and helping with
reattaching spraydecks and pumping. If other kayaks aren't available
to make a raft, a fixed outrigger paddle float or an inflatable
sponson system will probably work best to stabilize the swamped kayak.
If no paddle float or other stabilizing device is available, then the
paddler must somehow be ready to brace all the while he is reentering,
attaching the spraydeck and pumping.
Once your kayak has been stabilized and pumped out, you should
resume paddling only if that appears to be the best option. Staying in
a stabilzed mode might be the best option if you are far from shore
and the conditions are still beyond your paddling capabilities. Why
risk having to capsize and pump all over again if you are well
stabilized, relatively warm, and know that rescuers have been
contacted and are on the way?" (p.4, Sea Kayaker Magazine, February
2012)

These are the obvious points indicating that Mr. Broze and Sea Kayaker
Magazine (and Canoe and Kayak Magazine) continue to deliberately lie,
endanger and cheat American citizens, even today endangering Freya
Hoffmeister in "Freya Rides Again" below Mr. Broze on p. 4, without
sponsons or sponson knowledge, in extreme danger, solo around Cape
Horn:

1. The idea of "another kayak and kayaker or two" risks more capsizes
and even dangerous collisions in waves, damage to kayaks and human
injury to limbs and bodies "bracing across the deck" instead of
deploying 50 cent sponsons in 5 seconds like any 2 ten year old girls
in the canoe pictures on this webpage or any kind of kayak. These
girls (or any normal ten year old children) can rescue any other
victims in the water, even obese or disabled adults, who only need to
crawl over a gunwale, and be paddled to shore at about 2 knots. Mr.
Broze and Freya Hoffmeister could either be rescued in seconds and
paddled to shore by 2 ten year old children or rescue themselves with
sponsons of course. Perhaps Mr. Broze is merely stupid since he does
not acknowledge that water in the cockpit of a stabilized kayak is
obviously stabilized by sponsons, as well as the kayak, transforming
the water from a sloshing and destabilizing force to a heavy, non-
sloshing, stabilizing force, in fact neutral buoyancy ballast like
best-selling sailboats deploying water instead of lead for ballast,
creating a sailboat that does not sink if holed like a lead ballast
type. Perhaps Sea Kayaker Magazine and Broze are merely too stupid,
incapable of understanding how canoes and kayaks work. Note that he
does acknowlege the danger of swamped kayaks: "Until most of the water
is pumped out, a swamped kayak is far more vulnerable to capsizing
again because of the free water sloshing around inside. Because
pumping takes so long, is tiring, and is often a two-handed operation,
the paddler is especially vulnerable to capsizing again during this
time if a kayak is not stabilized in some reliable way, a way in which
the paddler won't have to pay constant attention to keeping the kayak
upright during this long and critical period." (p.4)
Broze seems to be aware that the paddle float will flip the
victim over again without constant attention to the critical need of
keeping weight levered toward the paddle float, balancing while
pumping, let alone the critical capsizing danger while trying to
retrieve the paddle and paddle float after the long and tiring pumping
episode, and let alone sprayskirt and paddle float dangers: "...It has
two fairly serious shortcomings: You can't seal the sprayskirt, and
you can't keep both hands on the paddle while pumping." (Sea Kayaker
Magazine, February 2003, p.29) "The most effective way of using a
handheld bilge pump in rough seas is to lift the bottom of your PFD up
and shove the pump down between the spray skirt and your belly. This
way is slow and awkward, but you can pump with the spray skirt
completely sealed. Practice it." (p.27, Sea Kayaker Magazine, June
2006.) Matt Broze, "Pumping Out after Paddle Float Rescue",
Paddlewise, Wed, 20 Jun 2001 02:36:43 -0700: "...obviously there are
going to be certain combinations of clothing and spraydecks that don't
allow a pump down the front. Please try it and report back (if you
don't knock yourself out and drown after hitting your chin)." The idea
to shove the pump down the top of the sprayskirt requires unfastening
the PFD, since the tops of sprayskirts normally extend some distance
underneath the PFD. Mr. Broze in "Deep Trouble" (p.84) accepted
limited culpability for misleading dead David Kelley with a
paddlefloat "talisman", but negated this admission by not confessing
the main paddlefloat dangers: impossible to pump out in real
conditions, impossible to brace and retrieve the paddle behind the
cockpit without re-capsizing; despite (presumably his co-authors)
referring to needed sponsons stability in several places in "Deep
Trouble"!

(It is good to have Mr. Broze mention sponsons now, 18 years late, in
view of the letter, June 29, 2001, from the American Canoe
Association, ACA Black, to be seen in my book Canoe and Kayak Scam
Kills 1000 Americans, pp. 13-14, that was reviewed on Amazon.com by a
participating ACA whitewater and sea kayak instructor; lying to the
Attorney General of Florida about sponsons and paddle floats. Florida
has always had the highest canoe and kayak death rate in America. The
Darlington School children listened to the cries of Clay McKemie and
Sean Wilkinson, both 14 years old, screaming for help and dying in the
night near Suwannee, Florida, February 2005, without either canoe
sponsons or kayak sponsons; although they could have rescued
themselves in 5 seconds with 50 cent sponsons like any 10 year old
children. ACA Dillon won the Osama bin Laden Toilet Award that year,
for "significant and conspicuously cruel numbers of deaths on American
soil of American citizens or American schoolchildren".
Back then the ACA's own magazine "Paddler", together with Canoe and
Kayak Magazine and Sea Kayaker Magazine were in full throat anti canoe
and kayak sponsons howl, endangering as many Americans as possible and
using the deaths to try to stampede more potential victims into
fraudulent but profitable instruction schemes, with levels of
certifications for practising levels of instruction fraud like a
Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. This type of layered ponzi instruction
scheme is practised in both Canada and the UK, with very significant
death rates and profit, as well as great fun for those few who truly
enjoy setting up and killing either adult or child human beings.)

2. "Another kayaker or two, creating a solid raft by bracing across
the deck and helping with reattaching spayskirts and pumping" is a
foolish and dangerous waste of energy in an emergency, obviously
risking another capsize and putting even more lives in danger in the
same conditions! Broze even acknowledges this reality (although a
paddle float lever, deployed on only one side, rises in waves to
threaten to flip the victim again, unless the victim manages to deploy
body weight to counter-act the destabilizing force of the paddle float
on the end of a paddle, obviously not "well stabilized, relatively
warm" compared to warming up paddling toward safety with sponsons, not
knowing for sure if "rescuers have been contacted and are on the
way".) What do you do if no "rescuers have been contacted and are on
the way"? Broze seems to be incredibly stupid, considering this point,
but is he stupid enough to be not criminally responsible: ditto for
the 2 magazines? Why deny victims sponsons, this is human lifesaving
after all, like One former police officer (Dallas, Texas), saved by
his own efforts about 10 miles off the coast of Texas, paddling
through heavy seas to shore: "I am Austin Davis. My life was saved by
your floats. [See article in Sea kayaker Dec 97] There was no way in
my situation that any other means of recovery would have saved me or
allowed me to get home upright in my hypothermic condition. Your
opinion about the rolls and paddle floats mirror my real life
experience. Thanks for the gear that saved my life. I hope the article
in sea kayaker helps your cause." But Broze deliberateliy lies about
paddlefloats and sponsons, deliberately not stating the obvious safety
of Paddling to Safety with Sponsons attached, warming up and "staying
in stabilized mode", as his friend John Dowd, the original owner of
Sea Kayaker Magazine pointed out 14 years ago. Instead, Broze leaves
them to die, with no means to get to safety: "Staying in a stabilized
mode might be the best option if you are far from shore and the
conditions are still beyond your paddling capabilities. Why risk
having to capsize and pump all over again if you are well stabilized,
relatively warm, and know that rescuers have been contacted and are on
the way?"

" In this book I would like to emphasize rescue techniques other
than the Eskimo roll because a backup technique is mandatory...given
that relatively few sea kayakers will ever roll successfully and
because workable alternative techniques are too often neglected...The
great advantage of the Sea Wing (sponsons) is that it leaves the
paddler in a more stable position than before the capsize." (John
Dowd, Sea Kayaking, 3rd edition, 1997, pp.90-95)

"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety
and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North
American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea
Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea
Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994

old and universal." Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation
(10th Airborne, Fort Devens, MA)

"The Paddlefloat is not really a rough water rescue. During
trials I found the SEA WING (sponsons) ... very comforting. I paddled
out to sea in rough, windy conditions...I was able to sit on my rear
deck-not something I would normally do at sea...The rescue potential
is obvious." (Derek Hutchinson, The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking, pp.
104-111)

See the pictures of the dead American children, murdered in canoes and
kayaks by the well-documented fraud and perfidy at Sea Kayaker
Magazine and Canoe and Kayak Magazine:
http://www.sponsonguy.com/DeadlyPaddlefloatFraud.html
How would you feel this New Years and Christmas knowing any of the
2,000 American dead (a few hundred American children among them), lost
forever, dying in terror, screaming in fear that they would never see
their loved ones again. Ask these perpetrators. (There are strong
connections within the American Canoe Association for this fraud to be
an effective fraud. Even an ACA reviewer of my book discloses that.)
Don't forget the thousands of brave Americans who were forced to keep
quiet by the murderers, or face boycotts and bankruptcy. That was the
essence of the letter from Dave Harrison, Canoe and Kayak Magazine,
March 24, 1994, that you can read on page 27 of my book. Harrison
wanted me to keep paying him thousands of dollars in sponson ads while
his editorials and articles made misleading and dangerous statements
regarding modern canoe and kayak sponsons.

Although I have not personally profitted from sponsons; I have been
able to save many lives by steadfastly warning how dangerous canoes
and kayaks are made by this anti-sponson scam, that Mr. Broze
apparently is now re-thinking. I have been fortunate to have
rec.boats.paddle to whistleblow on this largest consumer murder scam
in the history of the United States. Years ago there were many wild
and bloodthirsty posters, who encouraged people to risk their lives on
whitewater stunts that killed Scott Bristow for example, on the Great
Falls of the Potomac. In self-hatred some of these posters reported
risking their own lives in similar stunts, or even telling people to
paddle over waterfalls and dangerous rapids using sponsons. Naturally
they hated any idea of sponsons and canoe and kayak safety. I have
used RBP as a Public Health Initiative to save lives and improve
society, making thousands of good friends in the process, throughout
the world. Sponsons are not difficult to understand, and my success in
saving lives is not complicated either: Simply focus on the goal and
speak the truth.

Read this, send this to the FBI and refer grieving families to me. The
year JFK was killed I was a YMCA canoe instructor and we had 2 canoe
types, both heavy, but having superior entry and exit lines: the
Chestnut and the Peterborough. We knew there were no canoe rescues
like the paddling a flooded canoe to shore or canoe over canoe scams
sold to victims today. Our YMCA program was similar to Bill Mason's
ideas in concept: interior flotation. Today even police officers die
in canoes and kayaks off-duty, every year in America. Some police
officers might even be participating in the canoe and kayak fraud as
off-duty instructors, unknowingly and confused. However the FBI
administration will eventually see the problem. They are better able
to respond to bank robberies, but they will eventually see the
deliberate murders by canoe and kayak. Even Mr. Broze blinked.
The American Canoe Association conspired with Sea Kayaker and Canoe
and Kayak Magazines within months of Mr. Harrison publishing: "I
thought these were a better idea, and have turned my old paddle float
bag into a camera case." (Dave Harrison, Editor in Chief, Canoe and
Kayak Magazine, July 1993), to deny any reliable means to save human
life upon capsize, to steal public money in a profitable fraud. The
ACA magazine "Paddler" is now extinct but did publish similar safety
lies for profitable fraud. In addition the American Canoe Association
has also encouraged the most lethal use of whitewater kayaks to kill
vulnerable young men like Scott Bristow, paddling over the Great Falls
of the Potomac. Not a patriotic sacrifice, but a sad waste of human
life and a poor, foolish example to American youth. The death toll of
dead Americans in canoes and kayaks is now around 2,000 on the US
Coast Guard database. See my new book:

Sea Kayaker Magazine, June 2012, p.3, by editor-in-chief Christopher Cunningham: "In March I returned to the Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium. I like the event because the waters in and around San Francisco Bay give me plenty of opportunities to screw up in ways that I don't in my home waters...My drop into the seat was awkward and I capsized...Shortly after I crawled up on the aft deck a fourth time...a kayaker who had been watching me came alongside and asked if I wanted help." Of course any 10 year old child above could have told poor Chris how to stabilize his kayak in 5 seconds with homemade 50 cent sponsons in stead of the more expensive but still relatively cheap 1993 vinyl Sea Wing sponsons that he is using on his kayak in the pictures above, in the 1993 Sea Kayaker Magazine article. At that time, Chris was among a number of persons like Dave Harrison and principals at the American Canoe Association who conspired to negate canoe and kayak safety in the United States, the UK and Canada. At the time I suspect that Chris's non-compliance with the conspiracy would have lead to almost immediate boycott of Sea Kayaker Magazine by advertisers, to the advantage of Canoe and the ACA's Paddler. Chris, like Dave Harrison was initially an honest American citizen, as evidenced in both of their articles above. Then, they criminally conspired to murder thousands of Americans with the American Canoe Association. At this time the internet was beginning widespread usage, and I began the largest post-Milgram social psychology study in history, using Google, rec.boats.paddle, and other internet-based resources.


 
 
 
 
 


 

Ms. Fuchs was the official at the Office of the Attorney General for the State of Florida tasked with following up on canoe and kayak deaths there. The
Darlington School children listened to the cries of Clay McKemie and Sean Wilkinson, both 14 years old, screaming for help and dying in the
night near Suwannee, Florida, February 2005, without either canoe sponsons or kayak sponsons; although they could have rescued
themselves in 5 seconds with 50 cent sponsons like any 10 year old children. ACA Dillon won the Osama bin Laden Toilet Award that year,
for "significant and conspicuously cruel numbers of deaths on American soil of American citizens or American schoolchildren".

This conspiracy is extremely well-documented, as one could expect, 2nd only to September 11 with regard to numbers of deaths on American soil.
There are literally thousands of pages documenting this conspiracy. The famous Milgram experiments at Yale have exactly predicted the circumstances necessary for  these extremely cruel and wholesale murders, even of American children.

Tim Ingram, May 19, 2012

From the Sea Kayaker Magazine Online Forum:

"Doug, I agree with you about Ingram's sponsons. After following the thread on Paddlewise, I decided to buy a set just to see for myself what this was all about. I found the sponsons themselves to be a quality product, but Tim's method of attachment to be problemmatic, so I rigged my wooden kayak with small permanent attachment points and set up my own rig to affix the sponsons to the boat. Worked very well--the gained stability is remarkable. Meanwhile, I continue to speculate on a better way of affixing the sponsons such that they could be swiftly deployed on a standard hardshell kayak without needing to affix hard, permanent attachment points.

God knows what exactly this poster agrees with since "Doug" is not able to "determine" anything except for himself (whatever that is). Nevertheless this person appears to be trying harder than Doug. He should re-read the fax and follow the link for pictures. Archimedes is taught to school children. Think about CO2 sponsons. Most people want to just pull a cord and save themselves, especially if they are less expensive than a wetsuit or drysuit. Why deny this to Americans and torture them with a paddle float instead?

But Ingram has chosen a confrontational, quasi-libelous full-attack mode on the entire small-boat world, with the results that anyone would expect. In my opinion, he is more interested in triumphing over his foes than in selling sponsons. Maybe small boat safety would be better served if he turned over his interest in sponsons to a neutral party, so that their merits could be more advantageously be exhibited.

This poster apparently prefers to believe that Matt Broze and Sea Kayaker Magazine would be happy to have sponsons replace paddlefloats. That is untrue of course. But here we have it: Ask Matt Broze and Sea Kayaker Magazine if they want to promote sponsons now. I have had no commercial interest for years. I am interested in saving lives within an extremely high death "sport". Sponsons have been free to use by anyone in the world for many years. You don't need to pay me anything. Tell Matt to write stories about people rescuing themselves with sponsons like Austin Davis, 10 miles off the coast of Texas when his sailboat sank. Only a kayak, my old 1993 type sponsons, a kayak and no pump or sprayskirt because with sponsons you don't need to pump out: The water in the cockpit is neutral buoyancy ballast. Even more stability. (Sea Kayaker Magazine, December 1997.) Neutral buoyancy ballast is only one reason why sponsoned kayaks and canoes have crossed both Atlantic and Pacific. "It is refreshing to have Matt's forthright assertion that sea kayaking is a dangerous sport, and that we are only a capsize away from an emergency situation."

On Page 94 of "Deep Trouble" Mr. Broze says his paddle float may have killed David Kelley. But that statement in Deep Trouble was made years before Broze was still telling people on Paddlewise and elsewhere: "The most effective way of using a handheld bilge pump in rough seas is to lift the bottom of your PFD up and shove the pump down between the spray skirt and your belly. This way is slow and awkward, but you can pump with the spray skirt completely sealed. Practice it." (p.27, Sea Kayaker Magazine, June 2006.) Matt Broze, "Pumping Out after Paddle Float Rescue", Paddlewise, Wed, 20 Jun 2001 02:36:43 -0700: "...obviously there are going to be certain combinations of clothing and spraydecks that don't allow a pump down the front. Please try it and report back (if you don't knock yourself out and drown after hitting your chin)." Instead of sponsons, the obvious choice for lifesaving rescues if you value human life.

The issue here is both posters are attempting to protect Matt Broze, who is documented here admitting: "The most effective way of using a handheld bilge pump in rough seas is to lift the bottom of your PFD up and shove the pump down between the spray skirt and your belly. This way is slow and awkward, but you can pump with the spray skirt completely sealed. Practice it." (p.27, Sea Kayaker Magazine, June 2006.) Matt Broze, "Pumping Out after Paddle Float Rescue", Paddlewise, Wed, 20 Jun 2001 02:36:43 -0700: "...obviously there are going to be certain combinations of clothing and spraydecks that don't allow a pump down the front. Please try it and report back (if you don't knock yourself out and drown after hitting your chin)." And "...It has two fairly serious shortcomings: You can't seal the sprayskirt, and you can't keep both hands on the paddle while pumping." (Sea Kayaker Magazine, February 2003, p.29) And having read: "Sea Wings are simply the best and easiest-to-use self-rescue device on the market today." Sea Kayaker Magazine, Winter 1993, p.34. He has been promoted to his position by a small magazine that can Now choose to promote sponsons! Ask them, not for me. I hereby tell them they can do it without owing me anything. Do it for approximately 2,000 dead Americans in canoes and kayaks since Sea Kayaker started lying and promoting paddle floats and the deadly cult figure Matt Broze after 1993. See http://www.sponsonguy.com/DeadlyPaddlefloatFraud.html
 

...I have to question this person's statements about his own mental stability above:  "I personally put in my rescue practice; I'd often be found dumping solo offshore in conditions that would be a real emergency, maybe even life and death for many paddlers, capsizing and swimming on purpose so as to replicate a real life scenario should I blow a roll or scull recovery. That doesn’t fit into a prudent kayaker mariner profile but it did and will help you understand the dynamics..."... etc.

So this poster seems to intentionally risk his life trying to be safe! But he appears to be well-respected by the other posters here; although the general public reading this may understandably think they are all nutters! It is typical cult behavior, compared to normalcy.

Many figures in this Sea Kayaker cult seem not intelligent enough to think for themselves, and are easily victimized, finding self-importance following a figure like Broze, well-published and promoted by Sea Kayaker Magazine as advocating safety when in fact he has been effective in denying any kind of sponsons to 2,000 dead Americans, even Pacific ocean-crossing sponsons!"
