Best launch time Brown's & Numbers

Funny what time does to your memory... although I used to guide down there not too long ago I can't remember when in hell all the commercials typically put-in for Brown's or Numbers. Anyone know the time frames commercials are restricted to? I remember how fun it was to guide rubber to rubber on Brown's but I really don't need share the shit show with my friends.

earlier is usually better

most companies first trip gets to the put-in around 9:30 and then they're staggered all day with 1:30 probably being the most hectic - 3:00 pm is about as late as most will launch

You don't have to worry about commercial crowds on Numbers, just a random boat or two.....

For Browns it's best to launch before 9, between 1030 and 1130, or after 3.....at least to avoid the most commecial traffic.

At 648, I'd say the best time to launch would be next June You can still get some fun out of numbers and gorge in a pboat, though...

No, rafting rubber to rubber is not fun at all and causes all sorts of problems.

Numbers launch is crowded from about 9:00 to 11:00, and then again at round 1:00. Last commercial launch is 2:00. Browns is mostly hectic all the time, but they lull is typically from noon to 1:30 or so with last launch supposedly at 3:45, though there's not a lot of commercial traffic after 3:00.
