Motor boats on Ruby/Horsethief

I've seen motor boats on this section of the river. Does anyone know if you can motor all the way to the Westwater take out or is there a limit on how far you can motor down the canyon?

Dont know the rules from Loma to Westwater, but Westwater says, you:

i. not engage in upstream motorized travel except for emergency purposes, or engage in downstream motorized travel at other than a low speed, wakeless mode, except in emergency situations.

a. launching of water craft for upstream motorized travel from Westwater Ranger Station and Cisco Landing is not authorized between February 1st and October 15th. b. boaters floating past or launching from Cisco Landing may not travel under motorized power for a distance of 2 river miles below Cisco Landing.

If you are properly registered as a motor craft, there is no problem going downstream from Loma to Westwater, and taking out there. GJ BLM patrols that stretch, and may check your registration.
