Yeah, the rafts don't really have much chance of getting flipped by just plain old wave trains, so they have a bit of leniency in that rapid. However, a kayak or an OC-1 can get eaten up by that hole, so just be careful (but don't try to go right too early, I've flipped like that before). But most of all, just take it slowly and have fun!
P.S. If you swim in Upper Mash, Swim right!
