Lost an orange Pyranha Burn below Narrows in Clear Creek on 6/13/14. Last seen it was going through the whitewater park in an apparent hurry to get out of the state.

There was a red kayak on the right bank between Elbow Falls and Screaming Quarter Mile yesterday afternoon, 6/16. Seems like it must have been pulled up and left behind. Saw it driving the highway.

Last night, 6/17, there was an orange kayak pinned on river right across from the Lower CC takeout, just above the dam. Kinda looked like a Burn, but who knows...the deck was facing the wall. At current flows, this will take either a rappel from above to clip into it, or some live bait action from a little cave/eddy upstream. Don't forget about the dam just below if you go for it--that hole looks chunky! Good luck!

I'm curious how much of the outfitting survived? Were float bags, throw rope, etc gone? Not trying to give anyone shit, just wondering if everything was ripped from the inside, looks like the boat had a rough time. Glad you weren't in it...

It is clear to me that these large boats are not packing enough floatation to survive unmanned descents.

I think boats should have a higher survival rate if they were filled with as much floatation as is possible. I've been wondering about using fattty bike tubes or small truck tubes that would really expand to the full size of the rear, as well as the front.
