    Default Jet Boating Some Gnarly Water







    Running up nasty lift into a glacial lake in Southeast AK. Solar 470 Super Arrow inflatable powered by a 2 stroke merc/mariner 60/40. Also made it up in my Solar 500 powered by a 2 stroke merc 40/30 (soon to be 50/35). The whole river is pretty fun starting out with a braided delta into a nice river with ample side channel action then starts gaining elevation and is steeper gradient but still with lots of lifts and side channels. The last few miles it's moving pretty goo with lots of boulders and standing waves with just one channel and ends at this outflow. Will post pictures and more video later.
