Running Numbers in a 12' Oar Rig

I've never run numbers so I'm looking for feedback re running it in a 12' oar rig, and maybe with two paddlers up front. Thoughts?

Thanks!

We ran numbers and browns two years ago with two paddle boats. Was a great time! Last year the water level was too high for numbers, but we ran browns- here's a good video from Seidels Suckhole at 4800 cfs- https://youtu.be/E-dghZYH1ZA. I'm in the green helmet- we watched 4 of 6 fully loaded customer boats dump before attempting to R2, so our expectations weren't too high. This year its looking a bit more tame at around 3000 cfs this week. Hoping to finish up my cat this week, and have the inagural float down there this weekend- if you see a teal and purple legend, say hi!

Commercial guides are avoiding numbers at these high levels and sticking with Browns. Be safe out there

12' oar rig tons of fun. Wait for the water to drop in Numbers though, but that rig with 2 paddlers in Brown's would be exciting.

Ive rowed it in my 12'er with good results up to about 1600. Havent run it higher yet. Its pretty spicy above 1400. Holes start to get pretty big and you cant miss them all. Two solid paddlers and a rower with class good class 4 skills will have a blast. You can take a look at a good part of it from the road and decide if its too high. If so, hit browns.
