Cool footage, How did the flipped boat fair in Skull? Did it re-flip?
I was in there at 13,000 and it looks totally different.
The boat did not re-flip. Two people rode it out over the big left laterals and boils over what is usually Razor. We finally got it flipped back over somewhere around the magnetic wall, which was not at all magnetic as I hope when I pushed them over there. It took 7 minutes from the time they flipped to when we got them back in the boat. It took 16 minutes to run the canyon from Marble to Last Change, even with all the BS.
I am also a believer in flip lines pre-rigged on smaller rafts. On big loaded boats, no way you are getting it flipped back over on the fly. During this recovery they tried a dozen times, but ultimately needed a 3rd person to hop on. In my opinion, only a small loaded raft or a paddle boat could be flipped easily on the fly. That boat was light and they had it vertical several times before they finally got it.
