Run center.  Watch for a hole you will need to punch through.  The wave-hole in the middle of the rapid is best playboating on the river and at the right flows one of the best in Colorado.  The best flows are in the 4000-5000 cfs range.  Ferry access is available from river right, but can be challenging.
