Texas Water Safari competitor Tim Curry in boat No. 742 went solo, which added to the push to the finish line as he struggles with removing his canoe from the river to port the dam because of the inflated saltwater barriers. Brian Jones in the No. 4 boat in the background waits his turn to go around the barrier in Tivoli.
