Cross mountain flows/boats

So, I plan on heading out to Cross next weekend and I'd like to hear some opinions on when this ceases to be a playboat run. I've only run it up to about 3000 and I have no problem taking my playboat down at that level. I'm sure that at some point a creek boat is a little more appropriate - I would imagine that this probably about 5000. Who has some experience at higher flows and can say when you would bring the creek boat?

I have wished for a bigger boat at 6200, and probably lower. Forecast for the weekend looks to be in that range:

Holy smokes B! It's looking to get big this weekend. Hey merry, am I correct in saying that from your graph, there is less than a 10% chance of having these flows this time of year? It's gonna be a good year! Who else wants to go on Sat/Sunday? Gore on Tuesday?

You are correct. Hopefully it doesn't all come down at once.

Happy boatin'

wholly mammoth

Git sum!!!



and for your viewing pleasure, check out this link of a creaturecraft going through the osterizer aka mammoth falls at a mighty 11,200. This is in windows media, it is a long download, but well worth seeing the creature get swallowed whole

Pretty cool, I can't believe those creature crafters seat belt themselves in and run shit like that. Seems like a good way to drown!!
