  Big fast cold and gravel bars

Thats the possible kink in the outboard idea. Shores show rafts abandoned after the trip so a pure float is doable.

Natives use outboards. They know the river much better than I do ( I just did it this summer) and know where not to take them. That said paddling gets you into the backwater where wildlife is. Too shallow for a motor.

River speed is generally from six to eight mph..and not much whitewater. The Flats are different..taking the wrong channel and having to backtrack miles might leave one wishing for a motor.

Over two weeks we saw two outboards, the Minto and Dawson Ferries and two barges. I would not call that excessive commercial traffic.
