  3. Odiorne Wednesday?

    The ability to edit postings is limited in order to maintain the integrity of conversations. There is a short period of time after a post is submitted that you can edit it, just in case you submit it by accident before you were ready. If a post is edited or removed after people respond to it, the conversation may become confusing, so after a period of time, the ability to edit is locked out. There are a couple of forum moderators that can make edits at members requests as long as we agree that it will not disrupt any existing conversation.

  7. Best rack for a VW golf wagen

    congrats on your purchase. I have a VW Golf. Love my car! I have actually carried 4 sea kayaks on top - all on edge using the kayak stacker.... and that was one set of kayak stackers with 2 sea kayaks on each side. I wouldn't want to do it every day (that one time was just about enough!). We all got to where we wanted to go (kayaks and all) the limiting factor for me was the gear that needed to go in the car..... since I don't have a golf wagon.

    Jim, a lot of folks who might otherwise say yes will be up at the Midcoast Sea Kayak Rendevous in Maine this wknd. Prudence

  14. I just pulled the trigger on a new VW Golf wagon based on input read on this site and am now looking for rack advice. (I previously owned a 4runner with 66 inch wide yakima bars). The factory weight limit on the Golf is 165lbs which means I might be able to carry 3 sea kayaks if I can buy the right rack set-up. My hope it to run two on edge type racks on the outside rack edges and foam blocks in the middle. Anybody currently carrying three kayaks on a Golf or other wagon type vehicle. Do you have rack specs you can share. Tks, Greg
  15. Muscle Ridge

    Come out and camp/paddle during the most pleasant season! Home Base will be Lobster Buoy Campsites in S. Thomaston, Maine, gathered at the Group Site ($8/head and $5/car per nite). Arrive Friday, leave Sunday. Paddling options abound: NE to Owls Head, SE to Muscle Ridge, or SW to Port Clyde. These trips are not appropriate for beginners. Minimal skills to participate include wet exit, self and assisted rescue, and previous experience in ocean paddling with conditions of wind up to 10K, waves to 2 feet, and crossings up to 1.5M. Typical pot-luck Friday evening buffet (proper attire please) for those so inclined to participate. Saturday is often a “go into Town” for supper, for those inclined. This trip is cross-posted to NSPN/MITA/SMSKN/and NSK to encourage participation from friendly paddlers from all these groups. Rather than limit numbers from each group, I will set the limit to 15 FOR THE GROUP SITE ONLY. Your spot will be secured when I receive payment via paypal (gyorkattdsdotnet) or check (private message me). PLEASE DO NOT RSVP ON CALENDAR UNTIL YOU HAVE SENT YOUR PAYMENT. There are plenty of private sites (2 adults, 1 tent, 1 vehicle and 2 children under 12; $28/nite plus tax) available if you prefer, or if the group site fills to capacity. Please make arrangements directly with Lobster Buoy Campsites @ 207.594.7546, and PM me that you plan to participate.

  18. Reflective perimeter deck line

    Only thing to I've noticed using 4mm reflective deck line is there's more sag when its wet. I do like the fact that its retroreflective. Phil
