finally got a boat
After about 8 days, and lots of muddling around I finally got my hands on a boat (Dagger Super Ego). Then proceeded to convince some locals that a river trip would be a great way to pass the afternoon. I convinced 2 others and one shuttle bunny! all good... We went to the upper pejiyabe (spelling most likely to be wrong). Water levels were low which meant it was about a grade 3ish run, pretty simple clear lines the whole way through.
The new boat handled well, great for whoopies and stern stalls, cartwheels were a little harder to initiate than im used to with the Rad. All good though hopefully tomorrow will be on the Pacuare, and plans are underfoot to head to Panama next week.
