Nice spankin' in the Machine. But a few seconds of glub were edited out. Did we miss anything?

Just about 5 more seconds of underwater footage, some $&"! blurts, and a frantic swim to the left eddy. The unedited swim is below. Not for little ears though!

I'm not a SWR instructor, but...

I might have suggested a different line for the in-boat portion of the run, but the swim seemed to be handled well enough. Clay got his feet up for a moment until he got oriented, then switched to an aggressive swim, picked a target, and went for it. Successfully. As a result, he got out of the water before going over the next drop. If I had done the same, I'd be happy with the results! :myday"

A slight modification to Cowper's byline might be in order here:
"Trashed - get a little every time you go"

Add The Eagles "Dirty Laundry" as soundtrack and you have a carnage hit!

I might have to do that Twindad. Your right Adam, I think I was supposed to keep my head down and swim my a$$ off, but if I'd done that then I would not have been able to yell $&@! without swallowing a mouth full of water!

After many decades of boating the Tot, I can say from experience:

"Boys and Girls, we are all between swims!

It is only a matter of time"

Certification not current as a SWR Instructor, but my comment is, the main thing is you got to safety before more carnage happened.

I have been swimming in both the left and right eddies there and both are a welcoming inviting place to rest.

I have also been down the two chutes down stream swimming and that was not fun.

It looks like the Machine treated you pretty well. I've heard it gets pretty trashy at lower levels. A few years back at a higher level, I went over the big rock that's sticking up at an angle downstream upside down...broke a finger...then went for a nice swim down Whiplash. It looks like you faired much better, besides the dent in the boat. :D

One of the great things about the head-cam is that you don't have to deja-vu it the next time you run that rapid. I've already re-run my runs of the Machine and Whiplash Thursday a few dozen times and seen things I've only noticed fleetingly before. I'm going to put that paddle in exactly the right spot next time! :kayak:

Elene,

I sent an e-mail to the address Cowper gave me and PM'd you on this board. I'm guessing the e-mail and the PM notification went to your junk mail folder? PM me back.
