Clear Creek below Lawson in Playboats?

Just looking for some info on how Clear Creek below Lawson would be in a small playboat? I have a new Super Star. I've done it twice before in an I:3, and I remember all the rapids being pretty straight forward. Just curious how the shorter boat will be with the small pourover type drops. Current level is about 700.

I'd rather not take both boats (one for the hole and 1 to run the river with).

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

At this level there are definitely a few ledges/holes you want to boof. Depends on how you feel with your playboat boofin', but it's good to go. Some rapids might feel a little juicy.

Taken the playboat down there a number of times including one exciting trip at about 1100 cfs! It's good to go but as Melrose said you'll need to be able to boof a couple little diddys.
