while I will take your word for it about Rasta having the experience, I will counter your insult abut the Boulder Creek, you obviously do not live in or near Boulder, because if you have ever paddled the stretch from 4 mile canyon into the play park at 600-700 CFS it is no "walk in the park"... I wasnt questioning the comment about "r-2ing" side by side is actual "R-2ing" However if you had ever paddled a "Mini" you would know that it is expoentially way easier easy to get out of synch with your R-2 partner, then even on a Puma, hence the coment about paddling it like a canoe
