Whoever's boat is stuck there, I'll be paddling BC tonight and could bring some gear along if you want some help trying to extract it. I'll be meeting up with people at 6:45 in the park parking lot. Hope noone got hurt when it pinned.

I think it was me you saw if you were in a big Dodge truck (I have a blue full-face helmet), but it wasn't my boat. I was just getting setup for a photo of my buddy. I went by it pretty fast, but that boat looked hell-pinned 'cause of the inconvenient location it decided to lodge itself. . .would make a nice rescue excercise :p

When I ran BC last thursday, we were going to try and pull it, but that eddy behind it was just too small to get anything set up, it would be a fun exercise though. I think with the level lower not it may be alot easier to pull.

How to get a boat unpinned

Today a buddy of mine swam the Elephant Buttress and his boat
got pinned in the exact same spot!

I see that the blue RPM is gone, so someone removed it: how
did you do it? We looked at it from the river right shore and it was
too difficult. Any ideas? Just wait for lower water?
