I have a 20:ft jet sled and wish to learn the Sandy. Anyone out there with river knowledge willing to share it with an old timer ? Pm me if interested in sharing your knowledge. Thanks.

If I were in your shoes, I would book a trip with Jack or Brandon Glass. Just my .02. Good luck.
The toughest section is from the Columbia to the I-80 Bridge. There is really not much of it you can legally run in your sled. If you can read water it is pretty easy after the bridge.

Where is this I-80 bridge you speak of? I suppose you meant I-84 bridge. Besides, you can run boats with motors from just above Dabney. Stick to the Clack rat!

I-84 to the top of Dabney isn’t a lot of water for how many boats are on that section when the water is prime. Pretty easy river to run up and down though. Boat launch sucks, really sucks.

My bad I - 84. And you are correct on Dabney. But you better double check where that deadline is at Dabney. There was quite a discussion on it a couple of years ago. Turned out it wasn't where everyone thought. Maybe you didn't get the memo. As to my "Not much of it you can legally run in a sled" I guess our definitions of what constitutes a worthwhile run of a river is very different. By the way you can also run that new canal below I - 84 that they opened up a few years ago. You will need the Columbia to be on the high side though. Maybe you should stick to rivers that you actually know something about?
