    Default If you have never boated

    If you have never boated a river like the Copper be EXTREMELY careful. This river takes lives every year. It has an extremely fast current, tough eddies, whirlpools and much more. It is not for your average boater. You also need lots of horsepower to get back up stream unless you have friends in Cordova.
