Boat in S-Turn - Waterton Canyon

There's a pinned boat (orange Wavesport Diesel 75) in s-turn rapid in waterton canyon, about 1.5 feet under the water, mid-river. Going back in on Thurs to get it out...didn't have proper z-drag equipment, etc. If anyone is able to pull it out, please contact Paul R. - 303.304.6050.
Thx.

Which rapid is S-turn? I've never heard of any rapid in Waterton refered to as "s-turn." Is it the rapid just below green bridge?

S-turn is the mankfest above green bridge - according to me. I've been wrong once before though. I'm glad there's no one in the boat - you should probably be able to remove it from a rock within a half hour if you're expecting to be able to save your friends. I know Wigston puts on an excellent swiftwater class right in Waterton in a few weeks.

Boat's out. Special thanks to Ed Crocket, who put all those hard-earned swimming skills to work this afternoon, and to Jon from Evergreen, who happened to be hanging out on the side of the river with his come-along and a 200 foot length of climbing rope.
