Yeah that is a good question Vermont Refuge. I think with the recent accidents on the river that is going to be a hot topic for the Fibark board. They have a website FIBArk â€” America's Oldest & Boldest Whitewater Festival
I ran from Stone bridge to Salida east yesterday @ 4300cfs and the bridge @ C.R. 166 had about 26"-30" clearance under the I beams. If we were in a oar rig we would had to nail the opening between the I beams for the oar towers...not to mention if you have a oarsman seat. In the paddle boat we still had to duck under that bridge.
Be safe out there everyone!
