September 24, 2017
Thanks to Off Center Member Nathan Lunstrum for submitting this new Flotsam Video:
The late Martin Litton believed the best way for people to understand how important it was to preserve the Grand Canyon was to have them experience this secret world from the river, but not in just any boat. Martin Litton's Grand Canyon Dories pioneered whitewatering on the Colorado River in the 1960’s and started a proud tradition of naming the boats after wild places that had been lost or compromised by the hand of man.
