    It would be an outrage to those of us that spend enough time in the Rogue to witness the damage that those boats already cause to what used to be a healthy river . Anyone that cares to look can see the changes they have already caused to the ecosystem its not healthy for anyone or anything .I will do everything I can to stop it its not a racetrack or is it.
