1. Shit happens
2. More shit happens
3. A stowed rope, no matter where it is stowed can come out
4. Shit happened
5. It's in the bag, and if properly closed - the likelihood of it coming out is pretty low
6. People need not to get their panties in a wad
7. Don't assume people are always doing or have done the wrong thing

And the Lord said, let there be whitewater. So on Friday, the 13th day of the month....

Yeah, I was dick about it last night....probably unnecessary, but I still don't think the center pilar is a good place to secure a rope. I certainly do appreciate the merits of having a rope quickly accessible in the lap, personally I have ran a short cam under the seat to clip to (with a locking binder) or lock it to the seat rail depending on the outfitting.

I also appreciate the op informing us about the incident. Have fun and stay safe everyone.

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

Thanks for the clarification. Hopefully it all stays put in the bag and is found.
