Awesome vid...which is no surprise coming from yall.

Have you ever looked into a first raft decent of Great Falls on the Potomac? It needs to be done and you're the guy to do it IMO.

k2andcannoli - Are you sure Great Falls hasn't been rafted? The Virgina side (U-hole, s turn, the spout) looks very realistic (yes I've scouted it in person - but I didn't have a boat or a solid R2 paddler with me). I would bet it's been fired up in a raft before.

Great falls was rafted with a blue 13 ft hyside and green super puma in 2011. Low water under 3 feet on the gauge. On the Maryland side, some of the drops were roped/portaged. The big drop on the virginia side was only run by solo paddlers in the super puma. The hyside ran the big drop with a ghost rider, the lack of rocker created some serious nose dive, face plant issues with the hyside on the taller drops.
