Once the water warms up I do plan on taking it out and tipping it and practicing re-entry.
Open water practice is great, but don't forget to practice in a slough.
I dumped a canoe in a mucky backwater and it was an incredible experience. We couldn't move in the muck. Did lots of hollering. We got out by pulling every weed we could reach making a pile on each end of the canoe. then stepping onto the weed pile we were able to get it afloat by that time we were neck deep in muck again.
I haven't liked canoing since.

I use 7mm cord and attach to the canoe with a prusik (fast length adjustment).
+10 on the Prusiks, I use then all the time. They hold my boat blind sides and roof. We use them with safety lines on deer stands also.
