Re: Researching an Agawam River paddle

was thinking if this would be a nice river trip and worth opening the river up a bit I could do a utility trip and bring a saw and pruners and such to clean up the river a bit... let me know if it's worth while.

I did not get to check it out as planned. had a few things go on and I've been working on some yard work and tree removal, went out and bought a good chain saw so I could get some stuff done.

Lake Rico?

I've been thinking about kayaking out on lake rico and spending a night on one of the islands, does anyone know if any of the islands are small enough to be cozy but big enough for me to setup a little campsite on?

Re: Kokatat Retrofit PFD...size large includes paddling knife

I'm a fairly big guy so I'm not entirely sure it would fit... what kind of knife is it that you are selling with it?
Can we meet up somewhere or could I come to you to try it on and if it fits I will buy it off you.

Re: Safety Boats Needed for Buzzards Bay Swim

I'm a relatively new Kayaker, I did it years ago but I'm also a trained life guard and had at one point in my life both Boy Scouts of America Guard certification and American Red Cross... might be a bit rusty but I could help if needed?

BEGINNER PADDLE - Mary's Pond, Rochester, MA

Cat and I went for a paddle in mary's pond today. very quiet and certainly a beginners paddle but was still a good time.
Good Location for Paddling or Swimming.

Re: Mattapoisett River Run?

It's freshwater fed and outlets into buzzards bay. Tide has almost no bearing on the water level it's all about how wet it's been and what the situation is with the dams that it feeds from as well.

Re: July 17th - Pamet River, Truro?

Craig, I'd like to join on that paddle if I could. will be out giving my new kayak her maiden voyage on friday.

Anyone have any experience with the wilderness systems pamlico series? seems like a nice flat bottom kayak good for rivers and shallow water runs it seems.

I'd like to setup a Mattapoisett River run sometime. it's a great ride through the woods and marshes and such in Rochester and Mattapoisett and lets out into Buzzards Bay. It has a few portages that aren't too bad and the water level makes a huge difference but this is always a great trip. anyone in...
