I spent some time on the Baker in 09. About the boat, I seriously doubt you will be able to find one anywhere south of the Futa so I would plan on looking to rent/buy one around there. What other info are you looking for? Logistics (finding the river, shuttle) are as easy as it gets minus the long dusty drive from the Futa. The whitewater is fairly straight-forward, but very, very big and consequential which I am sure you know. It's probably the best big water run I have ever done, in an amazingly beautiful location. We did some other runs around there that I would reccomend doing to break up the drive and keep things interesting. I wish I was there now...Is this ethan johnson asking the questions? Send me a message or something.
