Other Vehicle’s Rapid Difficulties

Ignorance of the danger

The accidents that occurred rivers were mostly caused by a ignorance of the danger posed by the weirs. Most weirs look very tame compared to sections of whitewater, and the amount of aerated water bears no relation to the amount of towback that will be present. Changes in water level can also account for changes in the amount of towback at a weir.

Missing the take out

The other two accidents where caused by the rafts missing the take out or when guest fell out of the raft during landing. This can also be a problem when unrunnable gorges or hard rapids are downstream. Always have everyone look at the take out when there is such a deadly hazard downstream, and get out a good distance above it.
