    Bassnpro1 im assuming this is the boat you saw go over Griggs? "I got to see a boat go over the dam, it was a wooden row boat and it got smashed up pretty good" Maybe this is a different one,since its metal...but man did it take a beating....Found it today just downstream of griggs...

    Looks like with a little work she'd be back in service! That just shows the power of water. If anyone would have been in that boat they would have never been found. Great picture, Thanks.

    You mean green aluminum boats don't fly when launched over the dam? Shucks.
     
  7. If there was a wooden boat, I have a feeling that it may not be found, considering what happened to the aluminum boat.

    That might have been the one that i saw go over. I must have been mistaken when I saw it, i just caught it as it was flowing over and thought it looked wooden through the mist. But that is the same color and the damage on it looks the same with the front smashed down. If it is the same one that is pretty cool, I thought it would have been down to the ohio river by now

    The wind and the cold isn't all that bad, if your wearing: 2 sweatshirts, winter coat,2 pairs of gloves,hat,scarf,long underwear,sweatpants,wool socks and neopreene boot liners. (which takes about 20min to suit up) The one thing that does get on my nerves is iced up rod tips (which happens alot when its like 10 degrees). But it all is worth it when the sunken "log" you just snagged into mysteriously starts swimming up the bank....
