    Thule saddle/sling vs. hullivator given NDK Pilgrim

    I have a Subaru Impreza. I carry boats and load them on to the car without any help. Like Jane, I'm not getting any younger (sorry, Jane, but it's true!) and still I can do it. There are things that you can get - short of a hullivator - that help with stabilizing the boat as you're loading it. Prius is a short car. You should be able to manage as long as your hand cooperates.

    Hey Sue, time to get your first boat! You appear to be officially hooked!

    Wasn't able to get in. Holiday mornings when it's a million degrees don't work! Hope you had fun, Bob!

    Sat June 30 Cape Ann Paddle - All Welcome

    Fun day on cool water escaping the city heat and paddling with a bunch of new club members, some of whom were game to capsize and practice rescues. Good work, Sue and Rich! And thanks to Joe for arranging and (mostly) herding us cats, in a challenging environment where we were outnumbered by power boaters by about a million to one. Getting across the Anisquam was like crossing Route 128 at rush hour. We all lived to tell the tale! Prudence

    Nice report, Joe!
  7. Fabulous trip that a number of NSPNers did last year. Mladen is a terrific trip leader and organizer. The boats were high quality. The venue spectacular. When your only complaint about the trip was too much excellent food, you know it was a special. Prudence
  8. Got the answer to my question, have sent the $$ via paypal, and looking forward to seeing my first moose...hopefully not charging at us! Thanks for arranging, Gary. Prudence

    P&H Scorpio

    Jim, I've paddled the new corelite Scorpio MV. Really nice boat. I'm actually getting one. But have heard this old Scorpio is a larger boat than the new MV. Abd obviously heavier.

    Bad weather = good parking. Back to the dry suit?
