Experienced Roaring Fork Drift Opportunity

I have a 2016 Hyde Pro Series Drift Boat that a buddy and I are bringing to float & fish the Roaring Fork this Saturday (4/20) from Carbondale to West Bank (I believe this is about a 7-mile stretch and is very mild right now). I would like someone with floating experience on this specific section to join us to provide some light directions and if you are local, it would be great if you have a shuttle vehicle. All of us will take turns on the oars and fishing (if you care to fish). I will be arriving in the area somewhere around 8-9am. Please reach out asap if you can join. Thank you.

Hold on, now. Is that the one above or below "Slice and Dice" where the big shards of flagstone stick up vertically all the way across the river below the drop and you can't see them until it's too late?

Ok, yeah, it's coming back to me now. And if you flip in slice and dice, you get swept right into Razorblade Rapid. Like that guy last year that needed two funerals...

Johnny,
Do not let these guy's get to you. There are no rapids right now because it is frozen over.
