Help me identify a poem about canoeists!

I'm trying to track down a poem I heard years ago on Radio 4's "Poetry Please" programme. I believe the poet is American, and from what I recall the title is something along the lines of "Practical Advice for Canoeists". Though it may be kayakers.

Please help me find this. My sanity depends upon it.

Do you have a more specific idea of when you might have heard it? "Poetry Please" has an online archive of all their shows going back through 2005: 2005-2006, 2007-present, if it was kinda-sorta recent...

This is a long shot, but could it be Sarah Bolton's Paddle Your Own Canoe?

Response by poster: It was about four or five years ago I heard it. As to the other suggestion, I should have stated that the poet was male, and the poem itself was comical, almost verging on limerick.
