  1. Whether it's worth it or not depends on the value of the boat. It's hard to tell what that boat is.
  2. You may have some skim ice to break through...
  3. We were myself, Fred Goodman, Bill Doucet, Dana Sigall and Jim Doscher. Conditiions were as predicted, with light winds and temps in the fifties and a short period 2' swell. The waves breaking outside the river were surfable but we decided to leave that for on the way back. This stretch of coast is spectacular with rocks and coves all the way. We had to be cautious as periodically a set of 3 to 5 waves would come in at almost double the usual. We stopped at a spot which on a previous trip had featured cliff jumping but no one volunteered today. The cove beneath Bald head cliff was spectacular as usual. Lunch at Phillip's Cove. The sun battled to peak out all day but never quite made it. The sky and water were beautiful nonetheless. We all got to surf a little at the river mouth. Here's Bill on a little one, looks like he should have caught the one behind... Thanks to everyone for a great day on the water.
  4. I'm adding a hand carved cedar Greenland paddle and lowering the price to $500.
  5. I'll start a message tomorrow to all who have at a minimum replied "interested". Please contact me if you wish to be added.
  6. We'll be launching from the main parking lot, probably on the river side to ride the current out. I'm hoping the bathrooms will be open but can't confirm. I'll post a Google pin once we have a group message.
  7. Deborah, if the forecast doesn't change, any possibility for surf or rock play will be pretty tame. Also it's rare that I've been on a trip where some paddlers don't choose to avoid any rough water by staying in deeper water. I'm sure that will be possible on this trip.
  8. This will be the fifth annual fall trip to Ogunquit, heading south towards Cape Neddick Harbor. Parking is free after 10/31. See earlier trips here: Early forecast looks pretty mellow but water temperatures call for drysuits. Indicate interest here or contact me by other means and I'll start a group message.
  9. My Iphone records pictures in .heic format which won't paste into the posting window on the forum. I open them in IrfanView and save them as .jpg s. That works for me but is a bit tedious.
  10. That's my go to range for weekday paddles as well as I am also in New Hampshire and hate to fight the traffic south. I as well would be happy to work with you.
  11. I built this boat in 2017 and just haven't used it enough to justify keeping it. It will come complete with flotation bags, a sea sock, both a footboard and footpegs, now removed. kit of the original two part polyurethane which I've been meaning to apply to the seams. It takes a Seals 1.7 sprayskirt. $500 firm. I'm 6'0" and 185 and it's a snug fit.
  12. I will post WLPs north occasionally, between Hampton and York Harbors.
  13. Just saw this story on the morning news, set in a location familiar to a lot of us... https://www.wcvb.com/amp/article/massachusetts-robotic-mussels-may-hold-key-to-saving-new-england-shoreline/45530026
  14. Present: Myself, Jim Doscher, Jody Harris, Barb Ryan, Bill Voss. It was a beautiful fall day but early arrivals found the parking lot closed for construction. Luckily, the group being small, we were able to relocate to Odiorne for our launch. We stopped at Wood Island to view the latest improvements but I hadn't been able to set up a tour for this day. Everything exterior looks complete. We continued on to the Gerrish Island side, working our way up the coast to a nice lunch spot near the northern margin of Fort Foster. After lunch we worked our way up the coast, careful to watch out for large waves occasionally breaking in the shallow waters. It always amazes me how 1' of predicted swell can develop into kayak breaking waves in this section of the coast. We navigated through and decided to turn back just short of Sisters Point to avoid the mud at the takeout. Total distance 7.2 nm.
