How many "raftable" river miles in Colorado?

How many raft-worthy river miles are there in Colorado? Kayak runs don't count.

That's a good question which will require aproximately an hour of tedious mathmatics which I for one am not willing to do unless you are offering up some kind of prize...?...

Randaddy did quite a bit of it so it would strike me as most of it, seems like it would be a sick trip:

"Howdy y'all. I'm starting to pack for my trip down the Green and Colorado rivers. 56 river days with only one portage... I'm so ready!"


Check this and search for a few others of his trip:

Whats the difference? Perhaps a better approach would be to ask, how many miles of rivers in Colorado can you NOT take a raft down?
Practically anything that can be run in a kayak can be run in a raft...Gore, Wildcat Canyon, Source. This question needs more sidebars to answer fairly.
Unless you are looking to differentiate commercial raft miles from non-commercial raft miles. Perhaps, guessing from your buzz join date, this inquiry has something to do with HB 1188?

Raft-worthy??? What a stupid question. If it can be floated a reason will be found. Perhaps the question should read, how many possible river miles?

This smells a little fishy to me as well.
