    Yea prolly the most famous tour around, ' 'course aint bad when you're watching it from a B-boat either

    (Karey lost this event by only 26 seconds on an 8 day event, largely due to a much disputed technicality in the rules)



    (The Shotoever River is towards the end, the leg ends right at the tours dock actually)

    I'd like to be that Jet Pilot! We have the American River, here in NorCal. I wish we could open it up to something like this. I know, the tree huggers would lock arms across the river in protest. You could charge extra for that, though.

    Ever seen a real bone stock pump with a "rock grate"? A high performance one of those

    Besides who says they do? these pumps can handle alot more abuse than most people think, at least Kareys boat didnt seem to mind hehe.....

    Hahaha uhhh, ummm, errrr....... I dont think I have a pic of a stock berk rock grate, but they exist honest! lol (they are the parts under/behind everyones workbench, possibly in the shed collecting dust )

    Here's some pics of a typical whitewater race intake. They are usually 8-9 bars with a variety of tricks and theory's as to what to do to keep em loaded at speed etc. The center gap is often welded shut fully or partially. Basically alot of black magic goin on down there......

    That tour boat would definitely have something very similar altho I would be willing to bet they are running Hamilton pumps in that thing, or something similar.
