Our private beach is opposite one of the most popular rafting up spots on the river. In years gone by the river would be churned up like a washing machine all afternoon Saturday and Sunday.
The main difference I see is that everyone is putting in at local ramps and going straight to the island, they stay there all day and leave at six. Very few of them are riding up and down like they used to.
I don't know anyone that has quit, I do know a couple that have downsized. One to a toon and the other to a couple of Seadoo rxp-x's
