comment How to estimate the depth of a pool of water from a distance above?
I agree, rule one is never jump into water. A personal rule two is yeah you can jump from the boat after measuring it using a rope and a rock.

To add on this. 50N is for sports use, helping with swimming even when you're exhausted from waterskiing etc. 50N to 150N is for use in coastal and inland waters. 250N is for use on open water and can keep you alive even with heavy weather clothing.

comment In Canada, does a frontcountry campground kitchen shelter typically include a freezer?
@gerrit and thats why you always tie a string to the bottle. When at anchor I lower a bottle of prosecco to the bottom of the river (5meters deep), ice cold!

another 'cool' trick is to bury your food (simply dig a hole, insert the food container or bags) you can close it using either a plank or using branches, leaves and dirt.
