Has anyone shot the Chitina before? I'm always looking for new places to explore and difficult water means less people If you have been up that way, what can I expect? It looks like lots of braids and potentially variable water levels due to the glaciers. What kind of boat would be ideal? Are there any whitewater areas to be concerned about? How many river miles is it?

Any help would be appreciated. I'll buy someone a couple beers if they are willing to sit down and discuss in person.
