Regardless of the type of boat, won't the lowered water level from the drought make it even more congested as more barges and powerboats have less space in which to maneuver?

A few years ago I had a 17-YO young lady take my boating course as her dream was to build a raft and travel the length of the Mississippi with a few of her friends. Her dad supported her and took the class, too. I think I heard that she did it. You might consider a raft.
