  Depends on water levels

The Allagash can get bony..A wrap of a UL most definitely would call for a repair kit (which would be a good idea to bring anyway)

You can avoid Chase Rapids either by walking or Ranger shuttle but the bony parts do not have a portage.. Walking ought to be ok.

We have done the Allagash a couple of times in a Wenonah UL at which the outfitter just shook his head and said "You break zee boat". Water levels were high enough we rode over all rocks.. we ran at 1500 cfs.
