We were the first boat to put on on Saturday morning. I was wondering if I should post something since I wasn't sure exactly where it happened (somewhere below the first diversion dam). We noticed the left front tube of my raft was flat and upon inspection, there was about a 3" long slice thru the bottom of the tube. This wasn't caused by rocks...more likely something metal and sharp...
We were able to repair the tube w/ Tear-aid (wonderful stuff!) and get to the takeout with air in all chambers.
Lower down I noticed what looked like a piece of metal box tubing sticking up from the bottom of the river right in the middle of one of the drops
Beware floating the lower blue below Green Mtn Reservoir!
Sorry about your fly rod
