Hi Guys
This is my first year of canoeing and had a few problems with the wind taking me where I did not want to go. I thought a drift sock might help but not to sure about it.
I do have a few questions.
How do you rig it up to the canoe (I have a 15ft Coleman). Do you just throw it out the back?
Can you make your own or is it best to buy one from somewhere like CT. I thought a bucket with some holes on the bottom may do trick?

Thanks Lee

Lee,
no doubt a bucket would work, I asked about one when I purchased my Kayak and they told me to save some money and buy one of the nylon water buckets sold with camping supplies and cut a hole in the bottom.

Greg thanks for the advice. I purchased a collapsible bucket and a nylon rope from the dollar store drilled a couple of holes in the bottom of the bucket and it works just fine in a breeze. It may be a little under gunned when the wind really gets up, but I probably not go out when it’s to bad anyway.
