A real quick question:

So far I've always had to fly into Indian, so how does the road to Boundary Creek rate for driving? Pretty tame dirt road that will be ok for passenger vehicles or bring something burly? Is it similar in character to the road to the take out? This is later in the season so not worried about early season snow blocking it.

Thanks for any info.

That road is fine for 2wd low clearance vehicles when dry, but it is narrow, twisty and steep (the end) in spots. Also, there are always large vehicles pulling large trailers. Use of common sense and courtesy will pretty much get you to boundry in any vehicle w/o a problem in the summer months. Like most things, it's better to look ahead, rather than have to back out .

Hey everyone thanks for all the responses! It sounds like the WD will probably be perfect for my needs.

I really appreciate the input from all of you on your experience with different tubes.

I've been on a couple trips with my raft loaded down, watching the cat boaters glide around with barely any effort...I can definitely see having a hard time going back to the raft after being spoiled on the WD.

Can't wait to get on the river this season!

You'll like the 14' WD. I have a 12.5 legend, and have rowed a 14' WD several times. They are a little different in their handling, but both great Class V boats. I've found that the 14' WD has the same weight(gear) capacity as my 12.5 Legend.

Where the WD shines is speed; On the same river, same flows, same frame, same gear load, etc... I find the WD is noticeably faster in the flatter water than my legend, also tracks a little better. Of course with a play cat, flat water speed isn't of paramount importance, but on a one day Upper Animas trip I can always tell the difference after 26 miles.

Your raft is going to get very lonely once you get a little cat!
