A much easier way is to take a rope tie it to one of your handrails, make it long enough to throw across the overturned hull to the other side hanging down far enough for you to make a stirrup with a 6 inch piece of PVC pipe three quarter or half inch diameter is fine. You then would put your foot in the stirrup using your body weight to roll the kayak back over. Much simpler. Takes up no space keep it my port side mesh pocket

Not at all.

My son takes some care to tie down the gear, as do I.

But I've instructed him not to care about the gear if he flips the yak. Get it righted and get to safety.

My son cannot be replaced. The gear can be.
