This was the day of the 2008 NFA races.  This cataraft had probably never run Bogus Thunder
before, and gets into endless trouble.  He tries taking the far right slot (impossible at this
flow in a raft), then seems oblivious to the paddle raft right next to him, and finally perhaps
that dangling downstream oar near the end caught on something and explains why he's flung
forward so hard.  It was by far the most entertaining run of the day, though, if a little scary.
The paddle raft broke free shortly afterwards, no harm done.  - Photo: Chris Shackleton
