16ftr on browns canyon

Just wanted some opinions on taking my 16 ft raft down browns canyon tomorrow. I have rafted browns before but on a 12 ft. are extra paddlers a must?

Wondering the same thing. We're headed down next week with multiple 16' cats. Searching previous buzz posts seems to suggest ~ 800 is the lower threshold for a big oar rig. Let us know if you go.

I did it a few days ago and you could get down it with a lot of work. 1000+ would be better, 1200 fully loaded no problem.
