Thanks for your input. We ended up paddling the Silver on 11/20 and Ocklawaha on 11/21. Both days, we put in at Ray's Wayside, paddled upstream and then paddled back. The theme park was closed, which made for a peaceful experience on the Silver. On the Ocklawaha, we paddled upstream to the 314 bridge, and then paddled back. Weather was beautiful both days, there were very few motor boats, and we had a great time. If you're interested, the following links have photos from both days:
We look forward to future trips, including exploring different parts of the Ocklawaha.
