6-8 Lower Clear Creek Pinned Boat

I was putting on for Tunnel 1 Down and saw a pinned boat at the end of Screaming 1/4 mile. The boat (orange, maybe dagger?) is cracked in a way that makes it look like there is person still there. The pinned boat shouldn't cause any problems besides making your stomach turn when you think someone is stuck there. Hope everyone involved is ok.

Whoever left it should call Golden FD swiftwater rescue team and let them know they are OK. Give the description and location of the boat so that they don't respond to a tourist's 911 call.

Golden FD doesn't charge for rescues anymore, but this is similar to a situation that resulted in a large bill being presented to me years ago.

I think it's been there since last week. It was definitely there last Friday.

It's my buddy Joe's boat. He took a nasty swim there last week and got his boat stuck on that rock. He is fine other than a bruised ego and out a boat.

The boat is mine. I reported it right after the incident. When the water goes down, I'll go out and get it. It's pinned pretty well right now, as my buddy and I tried several days in a row to get it out.

Thought that was a road work barrel when we went by. Definitely not getting that out for awhile. At least it's easy to see.
