|The dories are a kick in the pants in the rapids –
several times we had the boat full to the gunnels
with water. The voice activated bailing system
worked like a champ. “BAIL!!!” And we did!
|Dories have been used for centuries as fishing
boats, they have high sides and a flat bottom
with sharp bows. Really great pitch and roll.
|A calm moment between rapids.|
|Ready for that first rapid – the Colorado River
was only 52 degrees, so it felt like a bucket
of ice water at 8AM. Brrrrr!
