I hope that "sickofitall" didn't really take Tom seriously that the rapid ought to be renamed after him. In Tom's defense all should know that within days of Tom's flip at Indian Dick there were two other boats that flipped there. I know, I too was on the river at the time. Perhaps the rapid has some different sort of hydraulics going on then when it was rated. Also, in Marble Canyon there isn't supposed to be anything serious going on so boatman can let their guard down and get bitten by the lateral wave in Indian Dick.
Tom, great piece!! Ya done good!
