  1. For now I stand as one upon a rock environed with a wilderness of sea, who marks the waxing tide grow wave by wave, expecting ever when some envious surge will in his brinish bowels swallow him. oh - I see, sorry Andy Nick
  2. Right - Sea-lect it is - I just have to find someone who has them in stock now... Thanks N
  3. Neither of the two day-hatch covers I've bought for my Explorer seem entirely satisfactory. The NDK one has lasted about a year and cracks are appearing, It also never looks like it's on properly, even when it is. The alternative Kayaksport one sits nicely and seems to last well but is slightly loose, the contents of my day hatch always get slightly damp as a result. To save me the expensive process of elimination, can anyone recommend a hatch cover that properly fits the NDK day hatch and lasts more than a year - and preferably has a hole for a tether. thanks Nick
  4. Oh crikey Liz! I winced looking at the photos, I think a repair like that would be beyond my skills I have a friend back in England that did exactly the same thing Nick

  7. I used to fly on the London - Boston route a lot and the view of the Maine coastline on a clear day was the highlight of the journey (and the reason for always choosing a window seat on the right of the plane). Hardly surprising, but on a recent trip to Muscle ridge I saw no passenger planes whatsoever, not even any con-trails - Just a few Cessnas taking off from Owl's head. You have to take the positives from 2020 where you can get them
  8. We went to launch from the Essex town boat ramp last Monday (for a trip around Choate Is.) and found that to be 'Residents only' - With no Harbour master to ask we went up the street and launched at Perkins marine. They charged $30 for launch fees - (for the party of 3 paddlers). I don't like having to pay to launch a kayak but that did cover parking and the use of (very clean) toilets.
  9. Surprised that one's not a keeper, John 🙂 N
  10. Well, we’re just back from a weekend at old quarry (we’re NH residents!) and I have some rather good news to report. Old quarry campground is open this year and will remain open for the foreseeable. A young entrepreneur (Eric), getting bored during the stay at home weeks earlier this year hatched a plan to run and manage the campground for the current owners. In a deal where the campground stays open, Eric gets a salary and Bill gets a retirement income. Win-win-win. I can report that it is still every bit as well appointed, well run and kayaker-friendly as ever whilst being very respectful of all COVID-19 requirements such as cleaning schedules and mask wearing.
  11. Hi Folks, We confirmed at the NSPN committee meeting last night that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be cancelling all club trips, at least for the next couple of months - So unfortunately we will be postponing this trip to Hermit island for the time being. If things look better later in the year I might see if we can run this in the fall. Failing that, it'll be on this time next year. Hope you understand. all the best Nick
