Method for constructing a quick shelter using your canoe and a basha.
You may be on your canoe voyage when all of a sudden the weather takes a turn for the worst. Not only will it be unpleasant you will also need to consider how safe it would be to continue on your journey.
One quick method of getting out of the elements is to remove your canoe from the water and turn it onto its side. You can then place you and your kit in the cavity between the earth and the canoe. Further shelter can be provided by pulling your basha over the body of the canoe and peg it out at the four corners.
One trick is to place the rear of the canoe so that it points into the wind to further reduce the chances of water coming in. Most importantly though is to remove yourself from the flood plain, as water levels may rise and you could then find yourself in a flood situation.
