Was it the kayak pined to the bridge piling on filter plant?

That boat was there for a day or two.

I saw a guy hike down with a come-a-long one day.

I think it's kind of wack to charge a recovery fee no one asked you to do.

I'd be sweet to hear the person got their boat back.

I do think it's cool your giving the person a chance to get the boat back.

Yes, it's the kayak that was wrapped on the bridge on the filter plant run, and it was there for more than a day or two (we were there for four days before we got it off, and it had mosquito larvae growing in it). It was creating a hazard for the beginning boaters learning on that section, and we spent several hours removing it from the bridge. Boat is certainly less than perfect now, and the recovery fee is to help offset our time and resources, if anyone claims it.

I don't post often but this seems ridiculous. A recovery fee? That is pretty lame. If I pull something of someone's out of the river you bet I'm not going to charge them to get it back.
That's how I live life.

Hmmmm Beer seems like a logical payment system.

How much should I have charged when I rescued a 'guide' and his clients who were stuck on the Poudre. 6 guys, about 90 minutes. Maybe a dollar a minute per person, so $540. That seems fair. I will have to remember that the next time I help someone.

I don't believe maritime law works that way on Colorado rivers. You are entitled to 'take' a scuttled boat in the ocean, but in this case you were either being a good samaritan for cleaning up litter, or...

I thought recovery was either beers or ice cream treats

Glad to see Jamie Dimon has joined the buzz. Everyone remember your routing number next time you're drowning or lose some equipment.

The river Karma that will come down on some douche that tries to charge a recovery fee will be of epic intensity.
