Found: NRS raft San Juan River arm of Lake Powell

Found an NRS raft on the San Juan River arm of Lake Powell on June 23, 2019. Assuming there's not too many people rafting below Clay Hills, I'm guessing the boat was lost further upstream. Please contact me if you think this might be your raft. 505-516-6453 or email [email protected]

This is from the Utah Rafters facebook page:


REWARD OFFERED for lost rafting gear below Piute Falls! Yes, three rafts tied together departed from Slickhorn C on the San Juan the night of June 16th.
Found rubber from two and frames but nothing else. Fresh tire tracks and footprints yesterday. Any help would be appreciated. Tie them up good!

Holy cow! I am very anal about checking that tie off one last time before bed. That was an expensive evening....

Owner found

Thanks Buzzians! I was able to speak with the boat owner yesterday and we've got plans to get him and his gear reunited very soon.

Maybe you can get him to agree to share the story here for returning his gear for him. Sounds like he is lucky to get it back and there must be a good story!?

Was my same thought. Disastrous river trip stories are like porn, you have to look! Maybe we should have a River trip disasters area on Buzz?

I'm confused by the "Fresh tire tracks and footprints yesterday" comment.
