This is about right from what I've seen. Once the rock comes out, the right side run can be better, however you need to leave a lot of room between rafts as they'll hang up in the gap until the water surges enough to force the raft out. I got jammed in there and had another raft run up over me once, then I got spit out and it was his turn to be wedged in there. I've heard the right low water run called "the birthing canal" because of that action.
And I feel for you, Osseous - that's a nasty swim where it gets darker and darker, then you see light and realize you're coming to the surface, only to have it get dark again before you can get a breath. You want the poofy PFD when it's big water like that.
Hopefully there'll be some bigger water than folks are predicting, and we'll have at least 3K during the summer...
