Blossom bar wrap & Hazard

There is a boat in the fence fully wrapped and deflated. The frame and one tower are in play and two other groups hit it hard enough to to puncture their tubes. It is not visible from the scout and no warning flagging was there on Sunday 10/28

Sounds pretty gnarly. Good heads up.

I think they may have thought a pumpkin on the crux rock was enough.

Wow, that is gnarly. Glad that's not my rig. Is that in the standard line??

Curry County Sheriff and USFS will be working on removing the wrapped boat on Friday this week.

That is an ugly wrap! Not sure about squeezing down the beaver slide until it's removed - it looks really tight.

I swung by with maybe a foot to spare in a 16'. It's tight (pucker factor: 4.5) but sounds like it'll be gone soon enough.
