RE: Surfers rescue boaters in distress...

I've set a couple of SOG speed records for my boat, or maybe for Krogen 42's in general. Outbound I think we were doing 14 knots (normally run 7-8). I could not have entered there, even at full throttle with that kind of current. There were also some pretty serious rollers; I would NOT have wanted to have to turn around in there! If you decided to use that channel, be sure to check the tide status before hand.

Oh yea, I also entered and went up the CO river once. We made it, but with a pretty serious pucker factor and a couple of dolphins leading the way. They call that entrance unnavigable now due to shoaling and shifting.
