Here's how my late buddy hickoryskier did it...I don't recommend this method.

MDB has a Swift packboat, she generally steps in and out with her paddle as support, set on the far side of entry/exit. One foot on shore, other foot on the seat, one hand on the paddle, other hand on the nearside gunnel, then both feet on the seat, then both hands on the gunnels, finally plopping down to the seat.
She usually pulls up parallel to a dam, deadfall, whatever, and exits to the side, again, with her paddle on the farside for support.
