|The constriction/slot/awkward b******|
|S bend/Z bend|
S bend did not go well for me. I forgot I was in a little boat and went upside down on the first drop and washed into a rock. Unable to roll, I let go of my paddles and climbed upright using the rock, Only to watch my paddles float away down the next drop! Oh dear. Oh well. I pushed off the rock and floated down the next drop, pretty sure it wouldn't go great. It didn't. It happily backlooped me! I waited a second to let the aeriated water clear, then hand rolled up. Ha ha! First hand roll on a river! I hand paddled round the corner to catch my paddles, which were swirling into the big eddy at the bottom. Determined, I went and ran it again, managing to remember that I was in a play boat and nail the line.
The Linn, while being bigger and more intimidating, is easier and I had no problems. Davey portaged, so I paddled his boat down for him!
