Johnny-Dodgin’ strainers on the Pemi

The Lavro Lazy Drifter had an exciting maiden voyage today including obstacles of every variety. Haven’t been on this section since Irene walloped New England leaving 3 new trees to cause adequate panic for the newly minted drift boat paddler. See JB negotiating a narrow section with 2 successive strainers downstream. We politely exited the vessel deciding instead to do the more pedestrian walking option. Did someone say class II? No thanks. We’ll need to log a whole season of hours to get these skills down. Oh…as advertised…it does seem to handle large, lurking rocks pretty well!
