Kelway Tanner – ‘the bone was showing’

Kelway did an Umko with Han van Ardenne, who tells of a high water marathon where they wrapped deep in the valley (near Riverside?).

Han surfaced, the boat didn’t. Then Kelway surfaced with a huge gash in his leg pouring blood. “The bone was showing!”

Han doctored him with a T-shirt-and-duct-tape bandage.

They finished at Goodenough’s.

Kelway went straight on to hospital for many stitches.
