Original basket boat in high water

Location: Bailey Falls Rapid
Status: Live River
By: Larry Orman
Date: June 21, 1980

Basket boats were used for air-sea rescue and had two large neoprene “hoops” over the tubes to support a covering against the elements. River companies cut off these hoops but this private boater hasn’t done that on this more modern basket boat (orange color shows this) as it gets crunched in the tail waves after Bailey Falls, in high water.
