Friend lost boat/paddle on lower Gunnison!


I was doing a late afternoon/evening trip with my friend putting in at McCabe's when she flipped my old rasta colored Wavesport Frankenstein about a 100 yards before the big strainer river right directly east from the Never Sink campsite.

My paddle has my name/number on it. Sadly boat does not.

Beer or gear reward. I think it might be sunk in/around the strainer but is not visible. Will post ad in shopper as well.

Paddle will between the strainer and heading towards the Curecanti/Mesa area and is an old Prijon blue/black.

She was with the boat and I had her swim agressively away from the strainer and boat and she ended up safe on the other side of river. She's ok and for me that's the most important thing.

I ferried her across the river to hitchhike back to the car and she met me at Curecanti sp? camp site.

Water is low and bony in a lot of portions, currently not recommended.
