    Default Am I crazy?

    We have a 2 zodiac with small prop outboards. Would it be a terrible idea to put in at Susitna bridge and motor up river? Is it even doable? I dont see why it wouldn't be with the exception of potential low water later in the year. I have no idea how deep the river is in September. Thanks, Johan

    Assuming you're talking Big Su...I put my 12' porta-bote with 6hp in at Rabideux creek and went up a ways past Birch Creek. Never did get hung up on the bottom but there was plenty of stuff to dodge in the river.

    Sorry I meant to put Chulitna. I think I blacked out. Motor up the chulitna.

    The canyon is very fast with lots of big rocks I don't know if you will have enough power to make it.

    We wouldn't be going that far up. Probably only to where the forks meet. Thanks for the heads up.
