Glad you made it out ok and good luck getting the boat out. I don't think you will be able to salvage much from the boat, other than having extra plastic to weld boats with.

I can picture exactly the tempting boof-to-rocks where this must have happened. This is one of the only features I bother warning people about who are new to the canyon. It sure looks like the money line form above, but lands so wrong, even at high water.

Glad you extricated yourself anyway.

saw a horizon line I wanted to boof ,as I'm going off the drop I hit a Rock that ended up making me vertical pin
Still curious where you pinned. I don't know Bailey all that well, but hope to get in there again soon, so would like to look out for it.

Again, glad you got out of the situation with nothing more than a broken boat!

Oh yeah, I call that spot "super boof". Looks so good but no way you are going to clear the rocks on the other side.
