I would be very concerned about shelf ice. I am not sure how much forms on that section of river but I have seen it on the Salmon about 8" tall. That would make a flipped boat or even swimmer that can't get back to the boat a very dire situation. I would also like to do a float like this and I am not trying to discourage you. But the ice is something to consider.
