Found Scorpius XS on I-5 (on way home from Gorge)

Anyone know who ‘lost’ their Scorpius XS (blue/black) and roof racks on the I-5 back from the Gorge? We salvaged the seat and leash and held a quaint ceremony for her. She’s tucked on the other side of the guard rail so she won’t blow into traffic. I have pics for insurance purposes as the boat is beyond repair. You can email me at Sorry for your loss :(

Share the photos!!!!!! Anyone who loses a canoe with the racks attached deserves a little heckling.

Yep I wanna see the ex xs too. Does that mean they didn't hear it rip off? What a shock when they got home.

FWIW, I've had in my shop a pair of 23' , 96 pound, double kayaks that yanked DOUBLE Yakima ( so 4 bars ) off a full size Ford's rain gutters @ 90mph .... LOL > NOT PRETTY !

Easy guys, it was a new boat, it had just got a taste of some Columbia river downwind... it came off the top of the car - rack and all, damaging the car, landing on the road and then run over by a truck and causing more damage there... it was devastating.

it happens,
thankfully no one was hurt,
it was a beautifully made canoe
and they had a long way to travel to get home.

i think we can all understand how awful that must feel...

either way, we will find a way to get that paddler back on the water soon....

Well said Corey, and mahalo for passing out ice cold beers to everyone at the finish of the Gorge downwind race!

Corey and Alpo,  +1 that bruddahs!  Hope your friend get another boat soon. How many times seen people forget to strap boats down  esp.  when we loading up and doing a downwind run. Never seen racks fly off but anything can happen. Take care and aloha!
