Launch at 7:00 Am for an 11.5 Mile paddle past Thompsons,
Spectacle and around the tip of Long island then back along the west side of Long island under the ghost bridge. Launch from Malibu beach and be back before 11:00 am at 3 mph pace.

Hi

I have just heard that the route between Moon and long Islands is likely closed to boat traffic. I am not sure where to check.
if it is closed would you be open to an outer island trip launching from the Houghs neck Marina?

Hey Pablo

Steve and I are up for this trip. We are early risers and very close so not a problem with us.
Is the Hough's Neck Marina located at 137 Bay View Avenue, Quincy MA?

Fun Times!

Hi Abby, Steve

Yes 137 Bay View Avenue, Quincy MA is the Marina/public launch. Glad yo are early risers.
I Like the mornings for smooth seas and Quiet!
Let try and Launch at 7:00 am as planned.

I did confirm with the Coast guard that the Moon-Long island channel is closed.

See you Saturday!

Pablo
