I think it gets harder at low levels
especially no name which spooks me at any level
the river gets more bony
and the lines get tighter which may be a problem for a wide or long boat
take a babysitter
or plan to scout any horizon line
I've never heard of it being run in an open boat
you'll spend a lot of time bailing but maybe a first D

Last summer I boated it with something like 4 open boaters. they were all good to go. did it in the beginning of june, medium high water. Just be prepaired to do ALOT of paddle bailing. The river in nearly continous with boogie water inbetween rapids. Late july might be a little too late, two-day-er might not be a bad idea. 26 miles of low water might take a while.

I've ran it (in kayak) as low as 950 on the durango gauge. (not sure what it was in silverton) I remember it still being very doable and still fun. It was a bit boney in places( right above needleton comes to mind), and i'm guessing boney for a kayak, means even more boney for an open boat.
No name was more of a steep drop followed by a good size hole than i have seen it to be at higher flows....., but that's easy to walk, and the eddies are easy to catch above it at low flows.
