We need some more details about Satuday's swimming on said rapid. I'm guessing if it were you you would have included that detail. We waited an hour or more down by the library. I had to blaze through due to a sinking craft.
It wasn't me fortunately. I won't name names, but he is a much better paddler than me. The victim will have to reveal themselves when they see fit. There was a drysuit torn in the process. The kayak pinned at the top of that mank pile rapid just below buttress. It took 30 minutes to extract it.
I then continued my run into town and dealt with another swimmer and boat. Fun times, no gear was lost and nobody was hurt too bad.
