    Chebacco Thursday 8 August

    New to NSPN? Or want to improve your strokes and edging? Get feedback. Share ideas. Trial and error. This is a great weekly opportunity! Be better prepared for conditions by seeing what you can make your boat do on flat water. Water is fresh, warm, and there are others to get you back in the boat quickly. From ~5pm to ~8 (dusk). Arrive anytime. Look for us in the cove to the left of the boat ramp. Map: Chebacco Lake boat ramp

    Short pump

    I've been happy with this one: SeaSense Kayak Hand Pump 12-Inch with Floating Mesh Bag Of course, smaller the size, the less volume of water exits with each pump. (aside: Janet, I am curious about your under-deck bag though. If you're at Solstice paddle I'd love to check it out. I'm always a little nervous having anything under the deck that might interfere with an exit, but my day hatch is less than convenient. ) David

    Great report! I liked the details -- some insight into logic behind rock garden decisions. Thanks!!

    Squam Lake, Oct 6-8, 2017

    It was a great weekend! Thanks Dan, for picking up some of the organization and your trip report. Thanks too, to our cheerful, collaborative, group of paddlers. New friends were made, while old friends were missed this year. We've got to bring less food next time! Oddly, the typically pesky chipmunks were rarely sighted. I'm also thankful for a brief view of the full moon rising before it vanished into the clouds above.

    Foam Back Rest

    Did you find a good source to buy foam? I'm looking. I have a Wilderness Tempest 165 (PVC). I like the adjustable backrest on this model because it's quite low, but I want to create a wedge insert to put in the void behind the seat. Just a sloped wedge against the bulkhead to let water more easily exit the cockpit. A few gallons get trapped every time.

    That makes sense. Any way to pass the message to Rick? I'm not sure he reads this forum regularly.
