Hey Don,

You are the one that reponded with the snooty sarcastic comments and then launched into the pompous lecture. All I did was make an innocuous comment in a public forum. You sound like a know-it-all douchebag. Can the unknowing masses please have another one of your pompous lectures on the power of moving water? I am sure nobody on MB would have any clue that going in cold moving water without flotation or much swimming ability is dangerous.

Until you have been out there a little longer you might want to stick to the sidelines and keep your mouth shut before you hurt someone with inability to reason.

But, you sure do have a pretty mouth. I just hope we don't need to teach you to pray (real good).

My 2cents.

I work up on the ditch as a safety boater. Half the people I see swimming have the fear of god look in their eyes. When this occurs, they could be two feet from shore and not have the metal/physical ability to swim to shore and grab a rock. Thank god for PFDs.

As a kayaker with many years of experience, plus swift water training. Going for a swim is not that big of a deal. Remove all that and I would be F#$%ed.

Be safe out there, these levels are a lot of fun.

Not sure why you are making uninformed assumptions about his swimming ability or why you are slamming Don for trying to be helpful (Don's been deeply involved in this sport for a very long time and is no newbie), but just stop, it is getting embarassing for you.

Generally these type of threads deserve a bit more respect. Can we move on and not question the details or make assumptions and ease up on the name calling for now?

Greg's right time to chill.

This is the forth fatality that I know of at a Colorado whitewater park, and only one of them was a kayaker or rafter. Be safe and keep an eye out for less experienced folks out there. It's ok if they don't like you for keeping them safe, just be sure to say it nicely, and God forbid anything happens you'll still be able to sleep at night.

well put man. i think it's a good thing for all boaters to have threads like this. lets people know what situations are getting others into trouble, helps keep us on our toes.
FC this man lost his life and you're on here trash talking. sounds to me like your the douche buddy.
leave it to buzzards to shit talk every chance they get.
personally i wear my pfd every time i tube. even sober and at low water.
back to the topic, my condolences to this man's family and friends.
and be safe out there everyone
