The Great Kanawha River is controlled by a series of locks and dams like the Ohio, and should behave about the same. However, I have seen her misbehaving, and she can be torrid when angered.

One season I had the P. A. DENNY at the head of navigation and within sight of the junction of the Kanawha where the New and Gauley join and had no problems, but got only as close as I felt comfortable. Little ole batteaus should have no worries.

But other than that, what would I know?
