Annotation In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the length of the Colorado River offered a rare opportunity. A small wooden dory named The Emerald Mile was launched with a goal to use the flood as a kind of hydraulic slingshot and nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled down the entire length of the Grand Canyon from Lee's Ferry to Lake Mead.
