Good lord! I guess it was fortuitous in a way that my skirt pull handle broke off (while upright in an eddy ya hosers ) and we decided to get out of the river. We didn't make it that far down.

Who has the chainsaw? Lower Snake is primo flow right now!

Also, having your skirt handle just rip off is rather unnerving.

It is still there, but has tilted so that it now only obstructs 1/3 of river right (shallow) and is nearly parallel with the current

It is no longer a significant danger to swimmers or boaters.
