    Default 8 to 10 Hr Float on the Chena

    I am curious if anyone has a float that I can do in an 18' Cataraft on the Chena that is about an 8-10hr float.

    I will be rowing through the slack areas with the oars so I plan on covering some ground.

    I was just thinking about going from Chena Lakes to the Old Steese Bridge pull out... Thoughts anyone?

    Thanks in advance!

    Default Options

    Flood Control to Nordale would be more of an acceptable float for your given time frame under normal water conditions. mski option is a valid fun trip worth a longer day and night very rarely done. Flood Control to the middle of town add a couple of hours. Last time I did Flood Control to Nordale it took 12 hours and I was oaring more than one would think to make it in 12 hours.
