Thank you for posting.
From looking at the middle photo, it looks like it could be a people catcher right now, with the top side of the boat pointed up stream, and the hull pointed down stream? Looks passable on the right?
Does look potentially very dangerous for a swimmer.

We will definitely be stopping to scout this one next month.

We ran Black Creek the day after the jet boat wrapped---the left side run is wide open & misses the boat by a mile.

Don't know the full story, but do know that the folks who were on the boat were stuck on a rock for ~45 minutes before getting rescued. It is a very small boat ~12 long. The folks were putting the boat in the water at Corn Creek the same day we were rigging. 8/23

No need to scout, the line on Black Creek is left anyways. Boat is now peaking out from under the water, can't really see it from the top or scout location but once you've ran the rapid and can look back it is very obvious.

Jet Boat Removed

Just got off the Main 9/3. We were lucky enough to watch a Huey fly into the canyon and remove the jet boat just minutes after we ran Black Creek. Man, was that a sight to see. That was one hell of a pilot. I'll be posting the extraction video later on today via YouTube. It was pretty bad ass to watch that go down (or up...lol)

River left is the run, and wide open.
