San Juan Launch Question

Hey all,

So I have a San Juan permit for the 14th of May from Mexican Hat and one boat in the group can't launch until the 15th. Is it possible for that boat to launch a day late and catch the group? I'm thinking more from the BLM permit side of things rather than them being able to make up the ground to catch us. Anyone ever done this or presented the question to the rangers? I plan on contacting the river office in the morning but wanted to throw it out there and see if this has been done, thanks!!

I don't think it will fly. The permitted launch date is the date the entire group is required to launch...... although they will let you swap people at Mexican Hat when doing the whole trip....

Mexican Hat Launch

BLM will say no. On a sepearte note, I have never seen a ranger or been checked at the Mexcian Hat Launch. Been down three times and launched last memorial day weekend. Drove two hours back home just to get my liscense on that one. Just saying, but am not advocating anything illegal or such.

I launched on Monday the 22nd and there was a ranger there to check my permit and gear I would not want to take a chance. Try to get a another permit for the other boater as a back up plan for the next day. I haven't checked the availability on the calendar in a few days. Why not just wait one day and everybody can go on the same permit, this way your all legit.
