Lots of people have crossed in all kinds of "vessels", including kayaks, canoes, latched together logs, rubber dinghies, inflatable dolls and one guy swam across. All the above have their inherent risks. The river is very swift, and hidden rocks make it a serious crossing. Even after crossing you have a considerable hike over the landslide at Capricorn Creek.
So, in short, it can be done, but you better be aware of the risks, especially this time of the year.
