I have a cabin on the big Su, roughly 40 miles north of Talkeetna. A few years ago I owned an old 22' Valco jet with a 350. I ran the river a number of times with no Major issues. Since then, I have purchased a much larger jet boat. 28' CustomWeld Twin. 460's. I will be back in Alaska this late summer and want to run the Big Su again. I wasn't all that nervous about the old Valco because of its size and it wasn't all that heavy. This new boat is huge and heavy and take a bit to get on plane.
Here is what i'm wondering:
What is the best way to get up river w/o putting her on the bottom? What is the best resource to learn how to read a river? I have a garmin chart plotter, and was planning on following Mahays up river to see where the deep water is. Unfortunately I doubt I will be able to keep up. Any and all help is appreciated! Thank you!!!
