Wrapped Dory in North Gate ? !

Does anyone know the story on the wrapped drift boat a couple miles below Sixmile Gap?

Looks like it might have happened early Sat or Friday. Lots of gear, coolers, etc on the shore. Wondering if anyone was hurt it looked like they rushed out of the canyon...

Too bad for someone. Is it a hazard to other boaters?

I'll forward your message to a friend in FS who's a river runner. He might know the story. Never heard of anyone trying to run a driftboat through that stretch, which is pretty studded with rocks.

Hope you had a good trip.

yrs, Chip

It isn't hazardous. It is maybe 1.5 to 2 miles below Sixmile on river right. Only half of the boat was out of the water when we went by.

There was gear all over on shore, sleeping bag, open cooler, food spilled on the ground. It looked like they were in a hurry to get out of the canyon.

We saw another dory putting in at sixmile on sat. They drug their boat down the trail!

Over all a good trip but the water dropped from 970 on Friday to 750 Saturday.
