Worth it?

So I have to go down to Granite CO for the next few days and I was wondering if it was worth bringing my boat with me(stomper 80). Water seems pretty low and I don't really want to mess it up on low water mank. Anything worth doing there at 200cfs? Think it will go up within the next few couple days?

Well, after doing some research on Ark ELFing, I've decided I'm going to bring my boat. If anyone is interested in running it in the next 3 days(mon,tues,wed) I'll be available Mon and Tues evening around 5 or so, and Wed around noon or early noon. Probably will have no internet access so my number is 3one4-sixone9-nine1zero9. Give me a call if you're down. Oh and I don't really know the lines so it could be helpful if you did. Not a big deal if you don't though. Not many lines at 200.
Later!
Shaun

the rocks are relatively smooth. pine creek to numbers put-in is a fun little stretch. you can walk/bike the shuttle easily. there shouldn't be any "lines" to worry about.

Not gonna get to boat very much in Colorado with this attitude. Boats are made to be broken. Creek boats get sad if they don't have scratches.

I would rather lap Numbers at 150-200 all day long than sit at home and watch tv...... now if your asking about bringing the bike or the backcountry gear vs. the creek boat I would suggest go with one of those two....but imo a day on the water is better than a day not on the water, even if it's low.
