Re: Waterfront property for sale N.Weymouth

Water front house still for sale. Please let your paddling/boating friends know. I think the right person will love it there like I did! Before switching over to kayaking, I had a boat on a mooring right out in front of the house. I actually went to see this house by boat the first time. There is a ...

Re: Waterfront property for sale N.Weymouth

Thanks Jordan :) on the plus side, we now live closer to the NH rivers, and I have a whole new area to explore in my orphan sea kayak. One of the first places I have my eyes on is the Merrimack river as it's pretty close to our new home.

Re: Boston Harbor

I've nearly run aground and been stuck in the mud paddling that area at low tide and at a -1.69 ft tide at 7:54 am I don't think you are going to have enough water to get anywhere. Perhaps you know a sneak route?
