Numbers in a 15-foot bucket boat at 2,550...

Bottom's tough to do. We made it through 6 rapids before the river sunk my raft, literally - we couldn't bail fast enough. Makes for a thrilling ride and requires loads of work from the paddlers. I wouldn't do it again though.

i recall back in 96 or 7 some dudes from albuquerque ran pine creek in a bucket boat at 4 feet (they planned to pull out above the rapid but couldn't). it was the only thing that kept them from flipping. not my cup of tea tho.
