  1. I'm interested . Never been out to Shoals
  2. Bill, I concur with David. There is an 8 inch minimum overhang to prevent damage to your car. On the upside, I believe it's the only system that is hydraulic assisted. I would wish Thule would make a couple of improvements that would actually make loading and unloading easier as our bodies adapt with maturity. Alright already, as we get old. I have one that maybe I'll build a prototype over the winter and trial it next spring. dave
  3. Should go toHampton beach, MSW has swells 6-7 at 12s on Friday wish I could go. Enjoy
  4. Sorry Liz. This almost happened to me. I had untied the bow line and decided to move the car when I heard this loud pop. Luckily for me it was the line and not the boat. I also use the Thule quick loop.
  5. Your report caused me to pull out the pics of my 3 day CCC camping on two different islands. That trip ended in a major lightning/thunderstorm in the middle of the night while on Little snow and then an early morning sprint back to bethel point.
  6. You guys lucked out. The sand bar between Wood and the shore is commonly known as the zipper. I believe on the flood the swells wrap around wood and merge at the sand bar causing a zipper like wave effect. Also the beach landing and launching can be challenging while the zipper is happening. Personal experience. Popam is a favorite training location for John Carmody.
  7. How sad is that! OQ was the perfect camp for Kayakers. Who is the new owner that sent the letters?
  8. This is Eagle Is and the boats are NSPN which appear in the satellite picture on Google maps.
  9. Cant see the answers but I guessed 2,3,5, 7,8.9, 13, 15, 18. and a couple I'd have look at a chart just cuz I can't remember the name of the island, but I did get the body of water
  10. Thanks Dan. A great way to connect with everyone.
  11. Joe, the link opened in google earth to the main page, but that is as far as it went. It may be my iPad. I'll try the MAC later. dave
  12. I remember reading about the Goldsboro incident shortly after it happened. It's always of particular interest when an account starts with the participants being experienced Kayakers. The incidents involving experienced paddlers I think offer the most lessons. They highlight was was out of their control and what would have possibly changed the outcome if ........ I'm sure you have all read "The Seakayaker's Deep Trouble" and if not you should. It has some great analyses from which to develop a trip checklist.
  13. Dan i was going to day paddle on Saturday. Are Gary and Theresa really paddling Sunday
