Pinned EZ Lower Clear Creek

Took a swim today in screaming, my boat is pinned with the stern sticking vertically out of the water. Search and Rescue has been notified. If anyone wants to help with the recovery effort mile marker 270 in the canyon around 5 p.m. The more the merrier and I'll get you some beers for helping. From the looks of it, the pin will release easily but access is the major concern.

That is all.

STATUS UPDATE:

In case anyone was planning on stopping by to help out...
Glenn just called me and informed me that the fire department got in touch with him. They had some training planned in the canyon this afternoon and offered to remove it for him for free during their training. So he told them to go ahead and do it.

We figured if the Fire Dept was unable to get it then we certainly won't be able to do it until the water comes down some more. So the planned rescue tonight is now called off. Thanks though to anyone who was even thinking about coming to help out.

I'll let Glenn post an update about how it goes with the fire department once he gets his boat back.

Hope you can get your boat out glenn. Hopefully your outfitting is still there. If not maybe you could grab the outfitting from that other wavesport pinned in screamin 1/4

That rapid is claiming a lot of boats lately...All Wavesport too, I think. There was a totally destroyed boat in there Saturday afternoon.

Going up to paddle Blackrock & Lower Clear Creek this afternoon, saw a big crew of what appeared to be the Golden S&R retrieving one of the boats from the water. When we came down Lower, I didn't see any other pinned boats either so it looks clean at the moment. Of course, I could be wrong since I was paying attention to my lines and not looking for pinned boats.

I think they just like practicing. Plus, they probably didn't want to admit defeat. They had about half the fire station up there last week pulling on that orange boat (they didn't get it and went back to town).

If they are dicks when you try to get your boat back (assuming they got both of them) then tell them that Ture says to go suck a big fat cock.

I watched them remove the Diesel. It was totaled. It took twenty of them.

I'll let Glenn post details, but his boat was in the back of his car when I got home from work and he was happy. So the EZ is out.
