What boat for Lawson to Idaho Springs...

I am planning on using my Jackson 4Fun, but started thinking about the fact that I have never run it, and have never scouted the entire run... Can't believe there is anything too crazy, but sometimes yeah never know till you ask!

What do you all think?

Running it tomorrow and would appreciate your feedback.

Use a boat that won't flip you the rapids arn't anything scary but make sure you don't flip. i have done most streaches of the river in my full tilt and it works fine. If you do it saturday i'm intrested in going 303-668-8694 John

3-400 is rather mild difficulty-wise. I would bring my playboat because there are some really nice play-spots in there (and look at the play hole about 1/4 mile upstream of the put in).
