I just got an email from Jim:

"we found it. now we have to get it. it be above big drop 3 in the purgatory eddy that is a guaranteed ride through the gut. I guess the rumor is it looks like a bomb went off and the shore is covered with gear."

Thanks to all that looked into the posting. Currently the owner is getting a jet boat to assist in recovery.

Safe and Sound

The boat and all contents except one oar made it back to Grand Junction. Daniel is happy but resting. Thanks to all out there that helped! We truly appreciate it.
