How hard is Westwater at 7000 cfs in a ducky?
I did Westwater at 4500 cfs and it was pretty easy. I'm a class IV+ kayker.
I want to take a friend on Westwater in a ducky in a few weeks when I expect the water will be 6000-8000 cfs. The friend is competent in a ducky, but not an expert. He can steer it fine and keep it straight in the big chop. He should have no trouble making the move at Skull assuming the upper lateral wave isn't enourmous.
How much trouble can he get into at about 7000 cfs? How tough is Funnel Falls, Sock-It-To-Me Rapid, and Last Chance Rapid? Will the eddy be big enough for recovery after those drops?
