Lost Oar in Westwater

Saturday we ran Westwater Canyon in our 14ft NRS at 17,500 cfs and flipped in a wave between Big Hummer and Funnel. Ran Skull riding the overturned boat (perfectly) and we were right side up before Sock-It-To-Me. But my spare oar escaped. It's a 9ft wood Smoker with clip.

Ouch! I think I know exactly which wave you are talking about. I put Brad in the drink, but managed to keep the boat upright. Never saw THAT coming! Hope you find your oar!
