rafring the CHattooga river

I didn't quite know where to post this question regarding the Chttooga river, but maybe someone here knows.

I am wondering whether section IV is a bit much for us. We have done whitewater rafting a few times, most recently on the Middle Ocoee (last summer). Is section IV on the Chattooga much more difficult? I know it's a great river in terms of scenery, and I read that the III section is really not much (Class II-III rapids are much less than the Ocoee).

Any ideas what we should do? Which company is recommended (I have check out the half day with NOC, which combines relaxing and action on the river).

Also- how cold are the water and how should we dress?

The middle Ocoee has fours and fives, so the Chattooga should be fine. I asked my guide about it last time I was on the Ocoee but he hadn't rafted it.

Watch out for dueling banjos on that part of the Chattooga. That is where the movie Deliverance with Burt Reynolds was filmed.

Might try posting the question on the Georgia or South Carolina forum where the river and the rafting is located.
