tried this in 2020 but covid had other plans so im on a redo mission for 2021... i am going to havasu first week of AUGUST staying at the nauti but wanted to check out the famous closed parker area and not knowing anything about that river boat having a deep draft and heavy ill keep it on the trailer....Any full timers down in parker area interested in taking me/ family (4) for a little cruise up and down the river to show us the area? we have never been to that area of az or river. will be in havasu august 1st-5th. had plans to go by land to check it out but by boat i assume would be much better. i will take care of the fuel or lunch or whatever makes it right for your time on the water. wanted to ask the RDP mob ahead of time....

Sure, it would be silly to be here with a boat and not use it. Check with me and let me know when.

Keep me in the loop. Maybe we could do this for him on my boat.
I figured he was wanting to just have a guide on his boat. This place is not that difficult to navigate if you know the shallow areas. Best way to learn those is behind the wheel with landmarks pointed out, especially above Road Runner and up past River Island.

I can take you for a nickel tour depending on the day.

I have a tritoon or the world famous Hooters if you give me a couple weeks to finish her up.

Be careful Paul, 707Dog is the kinda guy that will buy your fuel, pay for lunch & all the beers, then help you wipe down the boat.........

I'm certain you will get some amazing offers from the great folks in Parker. It may end up being better if you drag your boat down there & offer to take Wheeler or 1 of the other guys out for a day on your grocery getter. Either way you will have fun. I absofrickunlutely love Parker

On your way to Parker swing by Lake Dave's house and bring him with you. He needs more Parker time. :)

I sold it. Got picked up yesterday. Back to 1 boat. Had a lot people wanting it last 2 weeks but it was in Parker and hard to show. My buddy showed it for me and I drove out there this weekend.

707 your float will be fine down there. Everything from Roadrunner & down river is deep. If you go into the Keys trim up some. If you go up river past Roadrunner stay a lil left (Kommiefornia side) of middle at the power lines overhead, as you start to see Foxes work your way back to that side. Park backwards at Foxes, water really swirls there. If you want to go up to the dam follow someone that knows what they are doing & you will have a blast. Shut it off & float or hit a sandy beach on left (Kommiefornia) side. Wish I could be there to drink all your beer, show you around, and have you buy me lunch
