Where is CCR off. I've found it to be high by todays standards? Stuff like Crystal that only "insane" ran is now being run by droves. Equipement has made a huge difference in the progression of boaters and the bible was written when Huricanes were a hot boat. Did the ratings change when the new version came out?

Here's my two cents.

Class Four: Looks cool and exciting.

Class Five: Crap, I better not miss that move. I better make that eddey. Then as I run it, Damn I missed that Eddy, Oh crap I missed that move. Man this hole is eating me, how long can I hold my breath!!

The latter has reverted to my class III sensation now that parenthood has limited my days on water!!

Despite my poor attempts at humor, where did they miss the ratings?

I am with you, parenthood has reduced by boating ability, I saw GOD in my ace 4.7 on bailey last weekend.

I just want the less experienced boaters to know that some III and class IV sections in CCR are more challenging than others. No fault of the authors, fun/hair level is in the mind of the boater. Can't recall anything off the top of my head.

Bailey v. Black Rock.

So I like to argue. Black rock is a sick five at high water, as is rigamortis We just haven't seen a real run off in years. Bailey is a true five, but doesn't have some of the power that you will see out of Black Rock or Barrel Springs or Gore on a year wher water is going over spill ways. I agree the rating systems are soft and you definietly need to consider creeks and rivers as two seppreate beasts. It's just that many of our rivers have only seen creek like flows for the last 4-5 years. When you see the poudre or barrel spings or clear creek thumpin, you'll see man eaters all over in places that have been slack water in recent years. I keep praying for snow and rain!!

I have to disagree, I don't do "sick five" and I love Black Rock when it's smokin (> 1000cfs). There are too many rocks in the way below 600, kinda scary.
