Alex is right that 330 is a relatively low level, but it's also rare to see it much higher than that, so practically speaking, it's about the high-water mark for most years. This year and 2002 were the higher years, but for most years, 330 is about as good as it has gotten recently. I think 225 is a good minimum for a really enjoyable run. It's not much different at 300, just more padded out and a little bit faster. I wouldn't call 330 big, as you still have plenty of time to make moves.
As for the playboat, there's no play on Bailey unless you count eddylines and one non-eddy-served wave at lower levels. IMO, unless you can keyhole out of your playboat, you are taking a big risk doing any creeks in it. But the best line I ever saw over Gorilla *was* in a G-Force...then again, so was one of the worst.
Join up, suckas.
