Basket boat at Widowmaker in 1971

Location: Widowmaker Rapid
Status: Live River
By: Unknown
Date: 1971

Horsecollar life jackets were normal in 1971, but went away shortly after this – eventually, even the guides started wearing life jackets. Early rafting gear was so marginal that not having a life jacket seemed like the least of the issues guides faced – and people still had a great time.
