Westwater Options

Got a 2 day westy permit and want to combine with up or down stream miles. im looking for info on the section below westy. How long should i allow to get to moab or a easily accessible take out a little upstream? Is it worth doing it in a raft? winds? Im comparing this section to Ruby/horsethief. Ive done Ruby, so i was looking for reccomendations/comparisons. ive got 5-6 days.

From Fruita or Loma from upriver is a nice float, with some nice views, very slow moving will take two days to get to Westwater Ramp. One set of Rapids during high water otherwise none.

The stuff below is less scenic. you could extend a night or two below and take out at Dewey bridge, or several more options between there and Moab. Minimal rapids.

Yeah, it's 25 miles from Cisco to Hittle Bottom and another 25 to Moab. We went from Cisco to Moab in 4 days (very relaxed pace) at about 20G. So, from Cisco to Hittle, I'd probably allot about 2 decent days for it.
