To my utter amazement, I made it through Grand Canyon in the 48-inch-wide Edith upright. She's a wet and wild ride, but ballasting is a miraculous cure for a cranky little boat. Here is Granite Falls, one of the wilder rides, and one that I'd been dreading since the onset of the project.

Got your serious face on when battling the laterals along the wall.  Nice work, fun to watch!

It was running about 16,000, which we used to call low, but now we call high!

Nice vid, looked very clean to me. You calm demeanor at the oars is inspiring, oars in the water, deliberate but small a perfectly timed forward strokes You would almost think it's eas.y I love the moment you can see the boat accelerate down the back of the top wave and into the meat of the wavetrain. My roomate just got back from the canyon and said it's been high water down that way. Looks fun, wish I were back there.
