  We've done two trips

One was a six day circumnavigation of the Kab Peninsula.

Definitely requires spray skirts and allow a weather day. Power boats are no problem, there's room for all and everyone was courteous. Water is clean and clear with some tannin in places.

Ash River is a good start point. We put in at campground a few miles up. A trip on up to the falls is worth it I bet that place rocks after a big rain. Fishcamp(I think that's the name) Island is neat to read the story of the lady who lived there. The father of a park worker we met used to bring groceries to her. She'd get ticked off if he didn't bring whiskey.

We had long boats and camped two nights about 5 mile E of Ellsworth Gardens and did a day trip there. Then a day trip to near Kettle Falls Hotel. Visit there for meals and showers. Make sure to be careful at the bar it is the crookedest one in the country. You could also do a power boat shuttle to the hotel then paddle out of there, but check with them first. There are enough places to paddle for months just between Ash River and Kettle Falls.
