Thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it.
I have done a bunch of research that seemed to indicate that the current is about what you state when the river is at a normal stage.
For reasons connected to the ham radio portion of the trip I have to end up below 29.000 N latitude and have a place to set up a portable radio station operating position.
I am going to try to land here:
I worry about two things: The current in the main channel being difficult to paddle back against and the outflows where there are breaks in the bank.
