  1. I recently purchased a 50 foot tow rope and started practicing and re-packing it. Unfortunately, my packing is only 50/50, since half the time the rope gets tangled and doesn't fully deploy. Any recommendations or videos on the best way to pack it? I tried stuffing it like a WW throw bag, coiling it, and laying it out. Neither worked particularly well. The tow rope is a NRS Tow kit. Any good advice is welcomed. Brian
  2. Jim, I am not sure if I am on the wait list but now I can''t make it, so if I am on the wait list. You can take me off. Thanks, Brian
  3. What time should our butts be in boats?
  4. Paul, I am very interested. I was planning to kayak out there two years ago but weather intervened. I have my hopes up for good weather. Brian
  5. Thanks for all the responses, especially about how just one parameter can push the trip up a notch.
  6. Wow!! Looks like an awesome trip. I am adding this to my bucket list. 😉
  7. I would be interested. Brian
  8. I was explaining to someone about Sea kayaking Difficulty levels and sent them the following diagram. Of course, i am not sure where I discovered the diagram. Does anyone know where the diagram was developed. Is there an standard level definition? I looked on the websites of the usual suspects but I didn't find one.
  9. Thanks for looking. I guess its time to get a new one.
  10. Odiorne launch and the parking lot across the river are both closed. A friend and I were able to park in a small parking lot (5 cars) between then golf course, and the Wentworth hotel. I believe the launch on Piece Island is open. I think the real concern is not boat launching but people hanging out on the beaches, and that is why they closed Odiorne. https://www.cityofportsmouth.com/city/peirce-island
  11. Like everyone else, I am not sure what the rules are in regards to outdoor camping on the islands or a day trip kayak trip. I did notice that one Maine website indicated that all non-essential non-resident driving was prohibited inside the state was prohibited. I have been thinking about a week day camping trip out to one of the islands, but I am also worried about my car with the NH plates. I think I will contact the local police station for info.
  12. Hi, I went there on Wednesday, and it was fun but crowded especially at the boat launch. Unfortunately, I left my black Werner sea kayak paddle there as well. I went back yesterday, but it was gone. If you happen to see one or someone mentions having found one, please contact me either here or througm my email address- bgmccormack5[email protected] I will come and pick it up. Its a also a reminder to everyone that we should put our name on everything, if we want it back. Thanks, Brian
  13. Before reading this thread, I was planning to talk to a few friends about a paddle or maybe join one here. However, a lot of good points were made here. It would be hypocritical for me criticize others for going on spring break while I paddled with friends even though the risk was less. We are all role-models.
