Date: June 26, 1971

Yampas were the first commercial whitewater raft, made by Rubber Fabricators in Virginia – before that, boats were all military surplus craft which were heavy with low noses (plow through waves, not over) and small tubes, and not always in great shape. Big breakthrough and a relief for the guides!
