    Default Talkeetna River swamped boat

    I was up the Talkeetna River on Sunday and saw an upside down aluminum boat just downstream from Larson Creek. It appeared to be a short, high performance boat. It was on the north side of the main channel and had only about 4 to 6 inches of the bottom showing above water. Does anyone know the specifics? I looks like it will be difficult to recover.

    That happened on 8/29, seven occupants, all made it safely out of the water. It's about a 20 foot boat. Would have been easier to recover the week it happened, the high water last week pushed it down stream about 30 feet and away from bank. That's all the details I have.
