The goal in this shoot was to capture the essence of anchors for the rescue boat and hydraulic effects of the river on the boat itself. After the Rescue Max was used to shoot the line across the river, the River Left team anchored one line while River Right A and River Right B anchored the other two ropes. The goal was to "access" a victim in a very difficult place in the river.
Using the moving water itself along with with each rope (both in tension and compression mode), the boat was ferried to an eddy behind the rock (where access the victim would likely occur). A Reach grappling tool was used to attach a separate "vector assist" line to River Left and angle the boat into proper position.
