Double resize techniques?

I'm looking for advice on techniques for resizing my double, hard chined kayak, unassisted(apart from her upfront of course). Most books don't seem to deal with this scenario so I'm not sure where to start. Are capsizes any less likely in a double (not that I'm being complacent) and are recoveries more/less difficult? I'm considerably heavier than my regular kayaking partner, how would this effect resizing? Finally I've gotta ask, can you mention rolls and a double kayak in the same sentence? (I just did).
