You should rent an 18 foot oar powered boat and have a good time while you're down there.

Who are you to tell this guy what he SHOULD do? He should probably do whatever he pleases and have a great time doing it. I imagine that he already knew, prior to your post, that he could rent an 18 foor oar powered boat.

I have done a private with my motor snout a few years back and I had a wonderful time running with 4 oar boats and two kayaks. It was handy to have the motor rig on the windy days for the other boats to tie up to and make miles (making miles = more cocktail time in camp) At the time I owned the boat, but I went a little big and ended up destroying my frame (another story, for another time) so i no longer have it. The tubes are still on a trailer in Page, I don't even know if I still own them....

You might check the usual rental places for a motor snout, and possibly also check with GCMRC (Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center?) (I forget what the whole acronym stands for) they use those boats alot down there and may be able to hook you up.

Good luck to you, and make sure you are comfortable running a motor rig prior to the trip. Believe it or not, there are a few rocks in that river that you don't notice until you have a prop in the water.
