I run to the right of the island at Wildcat. At higher water I hug the right bank at the bottom At lower water I aim toward that rock in the middle at the bottom of the rapid and pull away from it. I saw a bunch of dories still running to the far right at the bottom of the rapid at low water with no problem. We have had a few boats on my many trips get stuck on rocks quite a few times in Wildcat. This Sept. we had a guy stuck pretty bad on that large rock. Luckily we didn't need a Z drag. If we did, I don't know what I would have anchored to. We had 3 strong bucks on our trip pull him off. My friend said he had a boat on his latest trip wrap there and they used a Z drag anchored to a rock wedge gadget mountain climbers use. I need to buy some of these wedge rock anchors for my kit. I never run it left of the island. How do you all run it?
