Construction Rules for Rafts

  • Each raft must have a launch rope tied to the end that is 20’ long and strong enough to pull the water out of the Outlet at the end of the raise.
  • If any wood screws are used, they must be completely screwed into 2X type material with no exposed tips that could cut anyone.
  • Where bolts are used, extra long bolts located near paddlers shall be shortened to prevent injury.
  • Rafts and raft items that are not pulled out by the recovery team at the end of the course must be removed by the rafting team within two weeks after the race (water level will be lowered to assist you).


Other than that, be imaginative.
