We had such a good time last year, we are going to do it again. This time the trip will be a little longer. We will paddle from Union St in Marshfield to the Hanover Launch. The opposite direction as last year. (with the incoming tide) This should be between 3-4 hours (about 6 miles) depending on length of breaks. The date is Saturday July 9th. Noon launch. Caravan to leave camp around 10:30n More to follow. Check your local brownhouse.

I have a brochure from Nantasket Kayaks. I don't know if these prices are typical or not.n n 1 hour: $15 single - $25 tandemn half day (3 hours) $30 single - $50 tandemn full day (6 hours) $50 single $70 tandemn n As far as this particular place goes, I'm not sure if they even allow you to take the kayak with you. They might only rent right there at their pier.n n The cost and availability of renting is prohibitive these days due to liability insurance. People do stupid things when they're in boats and then immediately want to file lawsuits when they get hurt due to their utter stupidity.n n There seems to be a lot of canoes at the waterfront at camp. Perhaps you could find an owner and convince them to go with you as their partner!

Get out and practice this weekend. Do laps around the pond. No tow ropes needed. The tide will get you there eventually. Very Happy
