No not at all. Anytime on the water is a good time.
South Branch there is not a lot to see, but once you get North of say Roosevelt Road it is very cool. You are right down in it and you can actually feel all the history from the "Golden Age." and don't forget you will motor right past the Dock where the Eastland Disaster occurred.
I had thought you were thinking of a system to raise and lower the stick while in the river, sorry if I came across as negative. You enjoy your day anyway you want to, but I believe after a few river trips you will be done with it.
Actually, I have buddies with power boats, if you want time on the river we can arrange it.

If a man is to be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most - E.B. White
