The Uncompahgre isn't a great river for a 14' raft, especially as an oar rig. You could get down the Montrose Town Run at higher flows with it set up as a paddle raft. An oar rig would be a PITA at the put-in and take-out.

I never hear about people running that section, so I assume there's a reason it doesn't get much action. Maybe a diversion after the water park?

Your best bet in that area is running from Almont down to the TO near Garlic Mike's, or you can run from Mike's to the WW Park. Both are class II. If the flow is over 3K on the Gunny the bridges get tight overhead.
