I am going up to KC to visit my family this weekend and while I'm there I want to hit up the river. So I'm thinking about bringing my boat, but I've never been on big rivers so I just don't know if it would be safe. I have a 1436 riveted jon with a 9.8 hp outboard. Am I kidding myself? The motor will get the boat up just fine, I use it on a river around here thats about 15-20 yards wide and anywhere from 8-22 ft. deep. I've had it on that river when it was flowing 2000 cfs and it was fine. If that same flow was on a wider river it shouldn't be as bad right? I kind of want to put in at the Kaw Point ramp because everyone seems to say that its deeper out that way. Let me know what you guys think, its about a 3 hour drive from here so it would be a long way to drive the boat if the river is too strong for my smaller boat to safely navigate. Thanks for the help.
