170 is about the most boat abuse that I will put up with on the lower, and even then, I'll only do it when I'm desperate. It doesn't get reasonable until about 250. On black rock I would probably want more water (250 or more). Some people will go lower, but they're probably from the Southeast. If you have to get out, you can park at rigo and scrap down a few times.

In my dancer days i always said 750 was optimum and 400 doable. Now i get all excited when it hits 200 for the lower. I am sure you will get 8 diffrent answers for every 10. sj
