Hull Gut parking

Anyone know what the parking situation is out by the gut? Are there still spots to leave a car for a long day paddle, or an overnight out to the islands?
Thanks!

Cohasset Little Harbor 7/18 9:30am

Going over to play the outgoing current at little harbor, probably getting on the water around 10am, done by 1ish, if anyone is interested. Great spot for playing and or working on staying upright in moving water. Please respond if you're interested in going. Helmet strongly recommended.

If people want a more a more structured session with instruction we can make that happen. I'd willing to help out a few people new to the surf zone (up to 4,) for something like an introduction to surf class, otherwise I'm picturing more of an ongoing informal session.

Anyone interested in a surf session down at the New Inlet in Scituate? There's a 7:20 am high tide, so meet around 9am to get a ride out and play/surf until maybe 1ish when we can get a ride back in.

Helmets, adequate boat and clothing required.

Hey Bea, you want to paddle with the boy and I, you can have the front seat of the double? All you would need is your paddle, life jacket and skirt.
Or if not Bea, anyone else interested in riding in front seat of the double, with a toddler and myself riding behind?

Wednesday the 10th the high is 5:30pm, although it's only an 8 foot tide, can play the incoming tide at Little Harbor starting around 3-3:30, and probably be back at the put in by 6ish. Small tide but would be a good introduction to paddling in current.
