How Long Does Browns Take at Current Flow

Wondering how long Browns takes at current flows. My memory does not work back to 2002. My wife and I are sharing baby sitting and trying to plan.

Upper Canyon from Ruby to Helca?
Lower Canyon from Helca to Stone Bridge?

We will either be rowing a 12' raft or R2.

Thanks a bunch.

Would you be stopping for lunch or sight seeing?

If you push the rubber straight through, on pace with the commercials, it should take you about 2-3 hours to float from Ruby to Hecla. Probably another hour or possibly up to 2 to get from Hecla to Stone Bridge. Should be able to do the whole thing in around 4 hours....could probably get through even quicker if you paddle your ass off the whole time...
