LOST: Plywood hatch covers, Grande Ronde

Hey all,

Been away for long enough I forgot my username so I had to start over! Hope I stick around for a while.

Took my tiny wooden dory down the GR this weekend (Thu-Sat) and got a little aggressive in the splashies above Rondowa. Gave the other boats some easy rope bag practice and rinsed off the top side of the dory. Recovered everything important except the full fifth of Jameson and two hatch covers.

The covers are finished plywood trapezoids about 18" x 12" with several velcro strips (which can't be relied on when upside down apparently). Last seen bobbing merrily down the stream.

If you're hitting the GR for Memorial Day, please keep an eye out! Thanks!

I'll be on the GR the week after next. I'll keep an eye out if somebody doesn't find them first.

Best to contact Lottie and Grant. They go down the river more than anyone else on a regular basis.
Good luck. Any pics of the upside down and right side up of the dory?

No pics. We are the group that always says "somebody should have snapped some pics of that...."

Found out some friends are putting in on Friday so they will keep an eye out. Level is dropping so might get lucky!
