That's what most folks I've seen do. Should be fine.

Tunacat, I'm going to have to check out that Prop Guard. Sounds like a must-have.....
I made one out of aluminum. Each year I just put the new expiration sticker on, just like a license plate.

FWIW, we put in on June 29 with flows around 2500 (pretty low) and we rowed 28 miles to Mushroom on the first day, with people taking turns on the oars. No kids on the trip and it was a long, hot day in the sun. We also had almost no u/s wind issues.

Throughout the trip we saw a group of 3-4 rafts tied together with a motor and a bunch of umbrellas - pretty sure they never even dipped an oar in the water.

I always like to bring my 5 HP. Last time we motored the first day to Mushroom Rock. It only took something like 2 hours or less. We did not use the motor again until the flat sections near the end. The section to Mushroom rock are not that nice and have bugs. Best to motor and get to the canyon.

Where do you put the motor when not in use?

I just stuck my sticker on the side of the outboard. East breezy.

I stowed the motor on the back of the transom mount that is attached to the rear of my frame. Used a couple of old sleeping pads to give it some cushion. Worked perfectly. BTW...Thanks to all that replied to my questions. Our Deso trip went great. Everyone on the Buzz has been super friendly and helpful.
