While the majority of this trip was getting towed by the motor, I kayaked a two man inflatable down the entire the main section including all the big drops.

Big drop 1 was successfully executed, and Big drop 2 as well with the Boofin Twirl.

All runs were clean until Satan's gut (Big Drop 3) tried to digest me. My advice is that kayaks should run left down the gut, not right. Leave the right route for the larger rafts, there is too much undertow and current that a light kayak just gets sucked sideways.
