by Twine, twine, method of travel tour boat in the river upstream with a rope, the rope properly used with this method of movement.
B. One end is fixed on the vessel, and the other end attached to it with a loop pull tourists walking along the shore. This method was used at a flow rate of the river 2 — 4 km / h (up to 6 km / h at the Dep. Smooth

sites). B. used to ship with little resistance movement — kayaks, catamarans, inflatable boats less.
Naib. Part B applies to kayaking trips. Lifting speed kayaks B. 2 — 4 km / h and is determined primarily by the presence and condition of shoreline — a narrow band of flat beach directly at the water. B. As used thin and sturdy rope dL. 50 — 80 m to withstand tensile strength 150 — 250 kg, for example. conventional cotton rope diameter. 6-8 mm (before going to the rope impregnated with a water-repellent composition). Kayaking B. attached to the installation at the second bulkhead mast height. ! — 1.5 m and a mobile leash — long tether. 0.7-1.5 m — to the front of the boat, Fal must be securely fastened. B. Surplus wound on the reel that is in the hands of the pull.
Going to manage B. kayak can several. ways, the easiest way is one of the tourists sits in second place on the kayak paddler and with the steering wheel and paddle controls it, trying to keep the smallest angle between the direction of motion and B. If you want to kayak can move away from the coast, however, are permitted angle between B. and direction to 450. Widely used control method for a rum-wheel paddle boats still attached, or feed it catches up with B. add. end so that the kayak was B. parallel to the coast. In this case, the steering in the kayak not planted, that makes it easy, and thus the work of pulling, but complicates the process of governance. Is used as the management of the sixth: the bow kayak secured long thin pole. 4 — 6 m-cerned by walking on the shore next to kayak tourist controls its movement. Naib. widespread way traffic on B. "a ship," rudderless: keeps pulling the ends of long ropes. to 6 — 8 m, attached to the nose (without mast) and stern canoes. Pitting and pulling the ends, pulling the kayak puts at an angle to the flow, so that it was moving parallel to the coast at a desired distance from it.
Drawing B, should be evenly go ahead canoes along the shore at a distance of 20 — 30 m, supporting B. stretched over the water height., 0.5-1 m, if the kayak to get away from the shore, pulling pits B., increasing its length, to reduce the angle between it and the direction of kayaks. Drawing must continuously observe the kayak, especially in difficult areas, to assist in its management.
