High flow Salt...

Planning to put on tomorrow and I find myself in the unheard of position of wondering how much is too much? Small cat boats, class 4/5 experienced boaters...Anybody have experience with high flows there? Or what the go/no go line might be?

Ran it at 25K and flipped 2/3 at quartzsite (sp?). Everything else was washed out. It's the real deal.

We ran it in cats a couple weeks ago between 7K and 4k. Some features were washed out. Ledges, Back Rock, and Corkscrew were big. Quartzite was pretty mild. Lots of funky eddy water.

Every once in a while a person can make a simple request on mountainbuzz and get a simple answer. Thank you both very much; that's exactly what I needed to know.
QUICK!! Shut the post down now before it metastasizes
