Also Electric-Mayhem how did you get your video links to show up like that?
The forum does it automatically. I think it needs a specific formatting of the URL. Rather then using the "Share" button you have to just go to the address bar and get it there. If I try to just put the text in the forum software just converts it to embeded so here is a picture...
Let me try it with yours...
If you want the most drama free ride through Upset, basically start just left of center and go full steam ahead and just barely hit the downstream end of that big lateral at the top and keep pushing the whole time. There are 3 or 4 more smaller laterals that will want to push you back towards center so you just have to keep pushing that way. I do 45 degrees towards the wall with the bow of the boat and just gently but firmly keep pushing till you get to the hole and then pivot to hit the hole straight. Its worked great 4 out of 4 times for me.
Your 2016 run hit that Lateral full on, which is a ton of fun... but you lost the oar and weren't able to keep pushing left. I think if you had gotten a few good strong strokes in it would have worked out. Either way...it looked like a fun run and the hole didn't mess with you too much.
Definitely a lot more fun then trying to haul ass right and be scared of hitting the meat of the hole the entire time.
I feel like its not an insta-flip situation for the hole in Upset. I kind of have a feeling that if most of the flips come from trying to go around it and failing...and hitting it sideways with no momentum. Hit straight with some speed and there is a pretty good chance of getting through it even if you hit the meatiest part.
