Thanks for the reply. I've paddled a playboat for years cause that's the only boat I owned, so I'm used to it and I roll it very well. However, I don't like to play that much. I mean, if I'm running a new river for the first time, I just want to stay upright as much as I can and get downriver. Once i know a river well, I can play. Thanks for the advice, I'll try to keep this stuff on mind.
Thanks for the response! Idk if I'll make it this time, but I'm thinking I'll try the lower gauley in september. Would you recommend a creeker or playboat on the New for the first time? My creeper punches holes better, but my roll is less confident in the creek boat.
I'm camping in ohiopyle tonight and driving out to the Cheat tomorrow.. I mean, I was really hoping to do the Cheat tomorrow, before the water goes down even more, and do the Savage or Lower Y on sunday..
