Golden Fire Department's swift water rescue team (2 full sized fire engines, rescue truck, ambulance, a few rafts, cones blocking half of a lane) were up there for hours last night trying to remove it. Dozens of tourists pulled over and got out to take pictures with their phones.

We ran Black Rock down to the dam and they were still there when we finished up at about 8:30. Don't know if they got it. It was stuck good. We were going to tell them to hook it up to a fire engine and pull but decided not to. Another idea was to stick our ass out the window and yell "it's my boat!!!" when we went up to run shuttle. We didn't do that either.

So, anyways, it is probably lucky that they don't charge for rescues anymore because that was at least a $5000 operation, based on what they tried to charge me for a similar but smaller scale exercise about 8 years ago.

I think Golden already got it out. If they didn't I'd be willing to go up there with you and try and zdrag it out. You guys might have already tried this but if not it might be worth a shot.
