We have tentative plans for a Saturday, later morning run with lunch at the Farmers' Market. There may be other after work runs as well.
What size is your boat? What else have you rowed? I would definitely have another along as a bailer. Even from 6th down, there are a few good hits where you'll take on some water. It's tight and you want to make sure you can move when you need to.
I put in above the dam near Eben G. I don't think I'd want to do that in a bucket boat, it's continuous and you need to be on your game. Believe it or not, some of those ledges are sticky enough to spin/surf a 16' Aire and I've been tossed. I think the 600s are stickiest.
That being said, I love it! It's super fun for me and has the bonus of being in my backyard.
