  1. Today
  2. Tried that already. Thanks again.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I am willing to bet if you did it again, but entered them in reverse order, they would come out right. But yeah, not critical.
  5. Thanks for the details but I tried that. It retained the display order I first used, which was the reverse order I entered them in. Not the end of the world.
  6. If you click on the triple dots at the upper right of the initial posting, you should see an EDIT option. Once in editing, you should see that all of your pictures appear in a separate box below the posting editor frame, separate from the pictures in your posting. It might be easiest to delete your pictures from the posting, and reinsert them in the order you want them to appear.
  7. We will meet at 9:00 am (yes, this is earlier than last week!) and launch promptly at 9:30 am. We are launching from Lanes Cove in Gloucester MA at the Andrews Street state-owned lot: https://goo.gl/maps/rUPYUwnVD8q6WNeJA Registration: To attend, please fill out this registration form: https://forms.gle/wuyFNv7nrCHUqtoW8 To join the trip you must be a paid-up NSPN member, and have signed the club participant waiver for this season. Your signup information will only be shared with other members on the trip. Predictions and Plan: It looks like a very nice morning. NOAA Forecast is light winds becoming SE 8-12 kt around midday (the reason for the somewhat earlier launch). Sunny with 2 ft seas, air 60 F, water 50-55 F. Rockport tides: 2022/05/25 Wed 01:57 AM 0.62 L 2022/05/25 Wed 08:13 AM 9.07 H 2022/05/25 Wed 2:22 PM 0.29 L 2022/05/25 Wed 8:46 PM 9.42 H A suggested plan as of this moment is to paddle north and east around Halibut Point to Rockport for lunch. If the forecast holds we will have a tailwind on the way back and some lee after we round Halibut on the return. If the forecast doesn't hold, we could go south from Lanes instead. Covid-19 paddling: this trip requires paddlers to be vaccinated against Covid-19 per request of the trip organizers, as rescues or first aid may require close physical contact. Trip level: WLPs do not have a specific level. All properly equipped members are welcome: please bring boats with rigged deck lines, bulkheads, spray skirts, and dress for immersion. NOTE: The Wednesday Lunch Paddles are cooperative adventures, not guided trips. We encourage paddlers to make their own independent decision about their comfort level with conditions at the time of the paddle. Each participant is responsible for her/his own safety. Don’t assume the trip initiators are smarter, stronger, better at rough water, more attractive, or more skilled paddlers than you are. For more information, see this description of our trip philosophy from the NSPN web site. Please PM me if you have questions or if you haven’t paddled with me before. Hope to see you there!
  8. 2022 Update: I spoke with Jack Farrell of https://www.seacoastmaritimecharters.com yesterday and the format will be changing a little bit this year and trips can't start until after June 20. He also plans to have a new, bigger boat ready in July or August and he is enthusiastic about it's kayak carrying capabilities! I hope to organize several this year and will start a new thread for 2022 when we get a little closer.
  9. Last week
  10. Sue I don’t know your size, but a lot of people like the Avocet and there’s one on FB marketplace for $1200 right now - fiberglass. If I didn’t already own one …
  11. Good Day Sue……I have a Current Designs Caribou kayak that has been sitting in my shed unused for the last several years. The ‘boo’ is in great shape. I had a brand spanking new hull placed on the kayak before hanging it up. The hull has no scratches whatsoever. The deck looks ugly. Why? The sun faded the red luster and the deck looks blotchy. Marine polish I believe will take care of that. The Caribou is 17’8” long & 21.75 wide. It is kevlar construction that is 44lbs. The kayak is in good condition. If interested I can send pics. Or if you want to chat and/or text I’ll release my phone number….I would like to get $1500 for this boat. I’d like to retrieve the $1200 I paid for the new hull. BTW, the hull had numerous scrapes and spider cracks when I decided to get the new hull. I had another Caribou kayak in my shed so I used that when I hung up my red Caribou……
  12. Hi Prudence I bought this P&H Sirius. Very nice but too tight cockpit. The deck lines are new and a new hatch cover. Ad last summer: P&H Sirius (size small) 17' touring kayak. Fiberglas and kevlar. Light, sleek, low profile. Cockpit opening width 15 1/2" Lots of life left in her, for the right paddler. Stored indoors except for one winter. This boat is used, but not used up. Could benefit from some TLC, but is seaworthy and intact. Last paddled June 8, 2021 1- One of the hatch covers needs to be replaced. 2- Hull has been repaired but it's solid and has been paddled plenty since then. 3- Could use new deck lines. Hope all goes well for you. And hope to see you on the water:)
  13. Hi Al I am very interested in your kayak. Could you please call me or text me? Thank you Sue 978-533-9335
  14. Good point Deb. I guess it really is a keyhole but I always think of it as Ocean cockpit since it is so large it does not feel like a Keyhole unlike the used Cetus MV that replaced this boat. Thanks, Al
  15. Hi Al, Nice boat and a good price, but to sell it faster, you might want to change the cockpit from 'Ocean", which implies a round cockpit which you see on older boats and can take some skill to wet exit, to "Keyhole". Hope all is well. Deb M
  16. Unable to edit the order of the pictures in my Classified Post of Original Cetus for sale. Anyone know how to edit and reorder? Thanks, Al
  17. Very dependable, red over white, 2007 P&H Cetus. Fiberglass. Equivalent to an HV but I don't believe P&H used the term "HV" then. Perfect for a medium or larger paddler who enjoys the ease of access of an ocean cockpit and plenty of leg room. Classic Cetus speed & stability along with quick turning for its size. One owner. Washed with fresh water and stored in a garage after every paddle. The deck lines and bungees were replaced a couple of years ago. They are in great shape and look good. Has a professional keel strip with additional Keel Eazy strip on the bow. Probably could use a short one at the stern (included with purchase). All hatches are waterproof except the smallest one in front of the cockpit. This seems endemic for this design. Plenty of scratches and dings. Some boats from this first production run had problems with the skeg box. As directed by P&H, two small zip ties were added and the skeg has never failed. Original receipt ($3,000) is available as is the P&H "Care of your kayak" with registration number. Old spray skirt included. Garaged in Winchester, MA. Lakes and river close by for test paddle.

  18. If she still needs a paddle I have some posted!
  19. I have two Werner Paddles for sale, both carbon and 210cm with straight shafts. Werner Cyprus, good shape, the left paddle blade has a bit of chipping at the edge of the blade. $215 Werner Shuna, excellent shape, was my backup paddle. $285 Both available for pickup in Southern Maine or I am occasionally in Manchester NH.
  20. I did get a boat on blocks on the Camry. I didn't need to tie the blocks to the boat first as I have a suction-cup roller thingie I can put on the back window. Then I can roll the boat up. Effectively I built a soft rack on the car. It's acceptable for running down to the local river, only a few miles, for some fitness paddling. I don't know that I'd do a trip with it. The front block is right between the top of the windshield and the moonroof and the roof is very solid there. But the rear foam block is another story. You can see the angle of the rear window frame tapering down so I can't get the rear block back any further. That spot on the roof is quite boingy. If I could get it back 6-8" more, it'd be in a spot where the roof is reinforced. But where it is, the roof is just thin sheet metal and it bends a lot. If I was going for a long trip, I'd have to put something solid across the width of the car so the sides take the load. It's somewhat moot now, tomorrow I'm swapping cars with my son and will have the Venza back for the summer. It has a original-equipment roof rack. -Ken
  21. I am interested in finding out whether or not the cost of parking at Riverhead Beach will be a deterrent for attending the Solstice Paddle on June 18th if we are unsuccessful with our request for special consideration. The results are anonymous, so please take a second and help us figure out if the parking cost is an issue or not. If you are not planning to attend, there are options for you to answer as well. Your feedback would be very helpful!
  22. During this workshop we will be looking at various skills and tactics for a safe and enjoyable journey. Using towing, on water repairs and various scenarios we will grow our knowledge of safety skills. This course will take place in both calm and dynamic waters (if available) to learn and test these skills and tactics. The course will be limited to 6 participants so please consider signing up early! June 12th 9am-4pm Southern Maine $115/ per person To register please click here About the course delivery staff: Jonathan Oltz I coach because I love watching people learn. As a coach I believe in a participant-led approach that gives students the freedom to learn, process and grow at their own pace. My responsibility to learners is to be caring, patient and recognize their accomplishments. I will always be attentive to my learners needs and provide a wholesome approach to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The ocean has given me a deeper understanding of myself as a person and as a mentor. Over my career as a coach I hope to empower others to enjoy the sea in a safe, mindful and healthy environment. Jonathan grew up on the Hudson River but didn’t discover sea kayaking, mostly by accident, until his early 20’s. From there he has paddled most coastal New England as well as the Canadian Maritimes, Wales and Iceland. Early in his journey into paddlesports he was introduced to British Canoeing which has developed as a leader and coach.

  23. @prudencebwell it certainly would be unfortunate if this is the first time it is moved given our new location!!! 😘
  24. Earlier
  25. Bill, Yes, that is the put-in. There was a portable toilet there last season. Bob
  26. Is this the West Beach in Beverly put-in? https://goo.gl/maps/PUGfPZNo5JfqnJVV6 What is the bathroom situation at the put-in? -Bill P.S. If that is the put in, I'm bound to join you this Wednesday. (Though I expect to bring float bags instead of bulkheads for my skin-on-frame.)
