Pinned Kayak Below Needles Eye 9/4

Did anyone see this kayak still pinned late in the day? I know the owner and planning a recovery tomorrow. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Came through this morning and tried to break it free not knowing what it was and came away with a large hole in the bottom of my raft. Something very sharp in there so heads up!

just floated thru around 4 today- I thought it was the same green canoe that was pinned there last year- I think its in the exact same spot. its in that left turn before the cabin right? It looked pretty wrapped and stuck.

Saw it there late afternoon also...just like whoapiglet, I thought it was a green canoe. Be really careful if you are going to try and remove it. Not the best place for a tether swimmer!

cheers!

I call that turn "wall splat". Sorry about your kayak, gh, and your raft, paddleit.
