Brown's on Sunday; first class III behind the oars

This'll be the first real class III behind the oars for me (I've run Pumphouse at 3000ish and Grizzly through South Canyon at 2200ish). I've run Brown's in a kayak a couple of years ago and it didn't seem very difficult (pool drop with lots of space between most rapids). I don't recall if we ran through Seidel's or not.

So, other than hoards of commercial yahoos, anything in particlular I should look out for? How's Seidel's at this level (730ish)? I've yet to decide if we'll run past Hecla or not.

It's hard to get into trouble at this level...other than getting stuck on rocks.
As far a Seidel's, it's easy at this level. I surfed my mini-me in there last week without incident

I would worry about Widowmaker more than Sidels at this level and I agree with Pirate Jim, getting stuck on rocks will be your primary concern. Enjoy it, when the commercials pulse through, pull over and relax.
