I'm surprised to hear you say that Heidi. I do stay in pretty constant contact with the AHRA regarding hazards because they have always been fantastic about removing them, and I hope everyone else does too...and they are there to do so because the Ark sees so much traffic, its not a creek, its a state park and something like half a million people go down Browns alone, lots of kids, and lots of people who boat it at a variety of flows. I am being hard on the OP, but I hope some other boaters also read this and think "shit, its a high water year, maybe I should learn how to actually handle/secure my rope properly"...
