Thanks Fellow Rafters!!! Beware of upper c takeout

I would like to start by thanking two fellow rafters that were at the takeout at Statebridge on the upper C on Fathers Day. We were backing up or trailer when the tire fell into the rut between the gravel ramp and the concrete ramp in the water. This pushed our axle froward and the slipper leaf spring out of the bracket bending the leaf spring. As we pulled out of the water to the rigging area tow rafter Chaz and Doug immediately came over with tools and a muffler clamp asking "is there anything we can do to help". We're able to ratchet straps the axle back into place and the use the barrowed muffler clamp to secure the lead spring. If that wasn't enough he then remove his blender to give us two more clamps. With out them we would not have made it back home with a trailer. So thanks again you also save the trip since we had my niece and nephew. Have a good rafting season

Also everyone be aware of the rut / drop off in between the road and the ramp and the boat take out across the river from Statebridge
