A couple friends and I ran the Nothing stretch (Cisco to Dewey) a few weeks ago while blasting and casting
. We were in an 14' aluminum v hulled boat powered by my sweet little 2.5 Mariner.
We only had to drag it over 2 ice dams. The second one was about 300 yards long, Ean fell through the ice in the middle of the river only once.
I think he got a little water in his muck boot.
