Re: Next Thursday Aug 30

James Street launch in Hull is not bad at low tide. Same access to inner harbor. Wish I could join you, just a little too early for me to manage after commuting.

Re: Hull Gut parking

I've been using James Ave launch and like it a lot. Nice warm-up time paddling to the gut. I do not know about overnight there.

Driftway evening saunter, Sunday 8.6

I'm expecting to head out from the Driftway to New Inlet this evening, launching around 4:30 on the last of the outgoing tide, playing around at the inlet - nothing too dicey, just enjoying the water - maybe paddle up to Peggoty Beach if the mood strikes. Stop on the spit for a bit of picnic dinner,...

Re: Questionnaire

My take-away here is that there are 3 people interested in doing weekend trips that are posted on this board. Is WTP a Thursday-night-only group? Or maybe a private-trip-only group? I ask so as not to waste time/effort on putting together trips and posting, if no one is likely to be interested. Fine...

I velcro mine to the center of the floor. Plenty of room there, and it doesn't get in the way of entering/exiting. Velcro lasts for a season, then sometimes loses the grip on the hull. Pretty cheap to replace though.
