They wrapped but were able to stay with the boat. When I came back up the canyon they were both standing on the rock behind the boat. There were a few boaters there already and they had a rope on the raft but soon after that rescue arrived. They were able to get a boat out to them with ropes and get the couple back to shore safe and sound. They never entered the water. The boat took a bit longer. Eventually they hooked a cable/winch direct from a firetruck and yanked it out.Iam confused. Did they get wrapped and rescued from the raft in river or did they have a bad swim ? Cause they'd have swam to shore by the time sars got there right?
I can feel the love all the way down here in Salida!So not only did they manage to wrap their boat on the only rock in that section that one could even conceivably wrap a boat on, they waited around for my tax dollars to pull them out! I hope I back over their shiny new boat when it and the rest of their gear is taking up three lanes on the boat ramp.
Even more disgruntled old boater
Thanks for having the patience for being around to fix stupid, I am glad someone does! Agreed we all were new once and people do deserve some slack but flipping/wrapping in this section would be like flipping on bridges than standing in the middle of the river till help arrives.I can feel the love all the way down here in Salida!
Not to denigrate your comments grumpy, but everybody had to learn sometime, and shit happens.
These people may have been stupid or they may have been newbies, either way, having been fire in EMS all my life, my slogan is "I fix stupid", I'm glad that they had emergency services there when they needed them.
If they screwed up that bad in a class III rapid to wrap their boat, they were likely uninformed or misinformed, and deserve a little bit of slack.
At least nobody was seriously injured or even worse dead. Hopefully they learned a valuable lesson, and won't get their ass in a ringer again... We can always hope.
Yeah, class 4 at flood stage lol. Had dude with a throw bag had a Kong ball, what's commonly known as the second chance ball, he wouldn't have had the stuff the bag every time he threw it and missed. That being said that was one hell of a throwIsn't idaho class 3 class 6 lol ? Around here people say shite like ,"oh it's idaho class 4 man...rowdy!" Like Hawaii size waves lol!!! Funny!

I'd be interested to see this, but for some reason the flipboard link wants me to disable an ad blocker that I don't have. Can you post the original source link?
