    Wanted: P&H Aries 155

    Actually, cue the small world music. I thought the name sounded familiar. Turns out Mancini is already a River Connection Kayak Owner from years ago. We've been a'chatting.

    Blackburn Challenge - 2018

    I plan on it again. If you want to get a jump on a slightly warmer latitude the Bay Bridge Paddle Race on the Chesapeake is fun and an excellent beach party at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, MD. Don't forget the Lighthouse to Lighthouse Race in Norwalk, CT in September. Marshall

    Night compass setup?

    Doing the night portions on Watertribe events the Princeton Tec Point light (6/12 lumen) clipped to the headband of my main headlamp is bright enough to illuminate my chart and see the Suunto or Brunton 58 compass on my deck but no so dazzling as to kill my night vision.
  8. I've got both here and it's going to be nearly 60 degrees today. I could be talked into hanging the sign on the door "Test Paddle". See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc. Hyde Park, NY (not next door to Dedham) www.the-river-connection.com hudsonriverpaddler.org

    Nighttime nav. light

    Princeton Tec Point light clipped to the band of my Petzl Vario Rush (wicked bright) or on the brim of my cap has worked well on the night time paddling portions of Watertribe events. 6 or 12 lumen mode. Been water resistant enough to get bashed with waves and keep working. About $14 See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc. Hyde Park, NY www.the-river-connection.com

    Folly Cove Launch

    Excellent! Thank you Liz.

    Folly Cove Launch

    Thank you Pintail for the emphasis "!" although the description of lurking underwater boulders makes for far better reason to look into Lane's Cove than slippery boulders. I've rappelled into ww launches before so if it's less than that effort no problem but no need to scrunch up a composite hull unnecessarily looking for passage between hiding rocks. Some other forums have claimed some safety issues for parked vehicles there. Is this a current concern or something of the past? See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc.

    Folly Cove Launch

    Thanks. Being that the house I'm staying at is almost across from Folly I'll put my Astral Rasslers uber grip to the test. I'll see how they do on saltwater infused slippery rocks.

    Folly Cove Launch

    A friend and I are going to be staying close to Folly Cove. Other than what I've read on dive sites, paddling past it on a number of Blackburns and drive bys, is there anything of interest I should be aware of launching/landing here? Anyone want to come along on day paddles June 8-10? See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc. Hyde Park, NY www.the-river-connection.com hudsonriverpaddler.org

    Kudos!

    Cathy did terrific at this past weekends ACA L1/L2 IDW/ICE with Instructor Trainer Educator Karen Knight. Great group management in scenarios when things, intentionally, went downhill on a staged all-in with paddler types such as Bravado gone a-Panicky, Major Mechanical Malfunction and Frick 'n Fractious. I especially liked your having Fractious hug your bow for support (ulteriorly, ballast) on your rodeo reentry. Some photos of from each of the days are on hudsonriverpaddler.org. Hopefully I'll see you at the Blackburn? See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc. Hyde Park, NY www.the-river-connection.com hudsonriverpaddler.org
  15. Nate, Wait till the new Astral LoYak and HiYak models come out in 2015. Very different footbed but the same super grip soles. Looking forward to a pair that'll work with my Fenn Mako Surfski and my P&H Loki ww kayak. See you on the water, Marshall The River Connection, Inc.
