Chris got a new boat

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

We got a new Fluid Do-it-now for Chris. It is a size medium. Took it for a maiden voyage on the Upper New River on the Glade Creek to Grandview Sandbar section. We were joined by Chuck and Nancy Brabec and Dan Waller. It was a gorgeous day. The water was warm but a bit low, about 2 1/2 feet on the Thurmond gauge. We had a head wind most of the trip.

The boat performed well. Chris was able to keep up much better than with a ducky. She did find a hidden rock and had a brief but uneventful swim at Quinnimont rapid.

We rafted the Snake River from the Hells Canyon Dam to Heller Bar. We camped below the confluence with the Salmon for a couple of days.
