World Record Waterfall Descent: Open Boat

This is a pretty cool progression:

Jim Coffey runs a 60-footer:

Then Brad McMillan runs a 70-footer:
North Carolina Paddler Bags Canoe Record with Descent of 70-foot Desoto Falls

I believe this is a record for an open boat. Anyone know if there is a distinction between open and closed-decked C1 waterfall descents?

Definitely a record for OPEN boat canoes only as this waterfall has already been run by C1 kayakers.
