Re: Researching an Agawam River paddle

Norm,
Thank you for the reply.
I will probably try some of the smaller chunks of this trip for now and see how it goes.

Re: Mattapoisett River Run?

Any luck with your river recon?
I could help, but not until thursday August 12th.
I'm also doing research on a possible Agawam river trip.

Re: North River---Aug. 3 or 4 (or 6), 2010

Everyone, I highly recommend this trip to anyone (5 hours round trip including beach time). It was a beautiful paddle down the river with the current carrying us along. We ended up finding a beach below the route 3 bridge that quite a few people had pulled their boats up to (someone had even set up ...

I grew up jumping off the bridge there. I didn't know there was a shipyard up river. Has that always been there?

I'll meet you at the shipyard a little after one on friday afternoon. I'll google the shipyard and figure out how to get there.
See you then.

Re: North River---Aug. 3 or 4, 2010

Brent, I dont get out of work until 0715. By the time I get to Marshfield from the Cape, it would be at least 0830 or so. Normally, I like to go home and get 2-3 hours sleep before heading out, but I guess we are slaves to the tide? Is this an easy paddle or is it more rigorous? How long does it tak...

Are you availabe friday 8/6 or thursday 8/12?
