Fly-By shows ingenuity (how's that for a big word?).
Sailing is easier than paddling. BTW, what do you do with the boat when you get to HC? Can you fish the lower end from it? Chain it to a tree? There was a bass angler that rigged a sail and put the end into the socket for his fishing chair on his bass boat. Saved gas and battery juice in going from one place to another, casting along the way.
