  2. Thanks, Nice to know it might be available I would prefer something closer to the outer harbor islands for the most interesting day trips. On a rough day a Hingham Bay trip out of Peddocks would be a good option. Pablo
  3. Don't know, but skunks I can live with.Poison Ivy is my nemesis Pablo
  4. Hoping that that the Boston Harbor Islands open up for camping later in the season.Paddled the area but never camped on Lovells, Bumpkin or Grape. Looking for suggestions, experiences, stories, to inform a planned group weekend trip later. Good campsites, access, environment. Regards Pablo

  6. https://my.historicnewengland.org/6800/graves-light Graves Light Station in Boston Harbor Description Wednesday, February 17, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. EST Waveswept Graves Ledge was a menace to mariners from the earliest days of Puritan Boston, claiming untold vessels and lives until the building of the light. In this online program, Dave and Lynn Waller, who began restoring the landmark Graves Light in 2013, tell the tale of this extreme engineering and construction project, which resultied in what some considered "the finest lighthouse on the East Coast." Blending period details with modern conveniences five miles offshore presented the Wallers with challenges, but their success merited a Boston Preservation Alliance Achievement Award. Join us on our seaward journey with German spies, shipwrecks, nor’easters, and swinging '60s clandestine parties. Notes Presented in conjunction with the Boston Preservation Alliance. Please call 617-994-6679 for more information. You will receive two emails after registering. The link for the webinar will be included in the order confirmation. Please ignore the print at home ticket.

  7. Mike I just cropped and scaled a PDF using Adobe/acrobat. I did not have enough time to go up the learning curve to manipulate and add lat/long, scale, and compass rose or mag variation. Perhaps after Joes's Zoom webinar Pablo
  8. Version 1.0.0

    21 downloads

    Casco Bay in two charts/pages suitable for 8.5 X 11 two sided printing 1. Southeast: Portland bug light to Jewel to Crow is. 2. Northwest: Jewel Island to Orrs Island including Harpswell peninsula
  9. Joe sounds great I just did a partial job to get a two sided 8.5 X 11 chart of most of Casco bay for this up coming weekend. I had a hard time cropping from the NOAH PDFs to get the right size and area, so anything new is welcome . I am up for zoom session. How do I find the download section of the site, otherwise I might share via google drive. Regards Pablo
  10. I had switched to Nite Ize polymer Cam Jam tighteners and polymer hooks to minimize potential flyng metal but now I see I need a polymer carabiner. Just got a Prius Prime so I look forward to learn the best way to tie down to Thule bar. They don't make it easy Pablo
  11. In the future: I have great service from APS and they fit Kokotat (unlike NRS) https://www.apsltd.com/
  12. Hi All I would like to suggest that the club consider supporting in some way our beloved paddle businesses and partners that may soon be suffering. Such as: MITA, Lobster Bouy, Langolan Inn and the neighboring camping spot, Main heritage trails..., Charles Rver, and others I have forgotten. As well as maybe buying from them rather than on-line . I would be glad to donate. Pablo
  13. Thank you all for the thoughtful discussion. I switched to NO as well. Its not mainly the paddle itself but the preparation, travel and in and out that are the most hazardous as well as the issue of modeling. Glad to learn more as the situation progresses I guesss I will get to know the Neponset estuary and Hingham bay, like the back of my hand. I wonder what willl happen to the Blackburn Challenge? Regards Pablo
