  CO River below Hoover is flatwater
  Posted by: elkhermes on Feb-07-13 6:48 PM (EST)

The CO River below Hoover Dam is pretty tame, all flat water. But, the current can be pretty strong.
I've read about James Manke paddling the Grand with a GP and a sea kayak. One of the articles about his trip said that one of the people in his group had some difficulty using a GP in the rougher sections, but they figured out how to make it work even though a GP isn't really ideal for whitewater.
I may hold off because the wind in Lake Mohave can get really strong and create a lot of chop and big waves. I'm thinking that I need a lot more practice bracing with it before I rely on a GP on a long paddle trip.
