    I don't think water type would make a difference? A lot of it is down to balance and even upper body strength. When returning to our rhib after a dive, tank and stab jacket removed, then carabiner to sponson ropes, then haul my erse out with 20lb's of lead around my waist, doubt I could do this now, would be a heart tester!

    Aye, certainly different shape at the pointy ends, with the adventure rear seat close to the rear, which helps. Ditching jacket will make the climb in less cumbersome.

    Although I did say the time I did the manoeuvre, I was suited, only. I always wear a buoyancy aid, which when correctly fitted, will keep me face up in the event of say passing out, I have too much respect for the water not to wear one.
