Howdy:

Just got home.....took pictures of a sunk driftboat.....must have happened Saturday afternoon.....cause it wasn't there during the week.



Up from the the old Satsop bridge and down past the "big block" below Cemetery Hole.

If the owners read this, it'd be easy to get out???? Some long rope, to pull from gravel bar side.....4-5 guys to break it free, would swing right over to the gravel bar side. Turn it over, get water out, row to launch......I'd not wait to long......maybe rain coming.....boat looks fine from what I could see......If you need help....ask and I'll help out.......360-580-6996 cell phone....

Second hand info here...........

Went down the wrong braid is what I heard, down by Cemetary slough I guess.

Were picked up by a guy I know, but haven't talked to him personally.

Again, all second hand info.

That would be my take on what happened.......picked the wrong "slot"....that is a scary 20 yards...and it changes from 1 high water to the next........1st time I run up it a week ago........got my "butt cheeks tight".....

I was going to comment that there must have been some gnarly water right above where the photo was taken because it looks to be resting in some pretty non-descript water. Should be able to hook a rope to it pretty easy.

If the boat owner didnt want the public to know about it, its too late now.

What a bummer... good to hear everyone is ok though.

Hopefully the guy will be able to get his boat back.

Hope everyone is OK and good on DrifterWa for offering to help. Having something like this must be pretty frightening but it probably helps when others offer to help you out.

I heard from Dave today. No mention of sinking his boat. He did mention some fish caught Sat. though. . . . .

I thought that too, but it looks too light to be Daves boat.

Not me. Mine's black. That would suck hard though.
I read it and thought ugh....I did a new river to me yesterday without a another boat. I talked with several people who have done it recently and felt good but nervous. Turns out it was fine. I did get out and scout once though.
Hope whoever it was is safe and warm.

Talked to the owner today as I was taking out. They tried to get it out this afternoon but weren't successfull. I guess it shifted since the above picture and is now wedged against a log that is making recovery difficult.

He said he took the wrong braid and got up against a log and it went down fast. Everydody was ok, but they lost some gear in addition to the boat.
