What's the cut looking like these days? I was thinking about hitting the area Saturday by boat. If I put in at Barn hill can I get to the tub, or are any of the channels iffy. If I do make it all the way around is there access to the outside via the usual route? Has Ryder's cove been restricted to residents only yet?

Keith will know more but access to the tub should not be problem from stage/barn hill. I saw lots of boats doing it last weekend. The southway has filled in and from what I understand is impassable.

I'll be interested to hear the response about Ryders. If it is resident-only Barn Hill is going to be a busy place with the comms and recs. Not to mention the saftey issues of small boats making the long haul around SM to get to the outside of SB.
