Am I Bout to Lose My Life W/O a Drytop?

Hey everyone, I am a kayak n00b with no kayak experience. I am running the San Juan river from Bluff to Clay Hills. June 1st. I will just be wearing a hydroskin shirt. With temps being in the 90's, and me trying to swim, gather my boat, paddle & whistle, do I need a drytop? I would think not, but I thought I would ask the river Guru's. I have over 10 years of rafting experience so I am not a total n00b. Any thoughts? We will have three rafts with us also, with my Wife in mine ready to throw a turkey leg to me.

Die, n00b!

You'll be fine... so long as your wife throws you a beer to go with that turkey leg. If not, you could die of DTs, a truly horrible way to go on a river trip.
