Oar Frame in Royal Gorge at 800cfs?

any suggestions on taking a 14' oar frame through the gorge at this level? I've run it multiple times, but never this low. Thanx

At 800 you woulda been fine. But it's 680 and plummeting right now. Oar frames are always doable but it's tight and technical, be ready to ship those things quick.

Putting a raft under it will make it a lot easier.
