Would there be a problem bringing one? There are AM boat shifts and the boats can make, say 10 minute shuttles and maybe the paddle is 1.5 hours. That could be a problem. Has anyone paddled out from the Childs river, and if so how long does it take? What is the tide way up there in the river?
Obviously the tide is delayed, and much subdued up inside that far. If rowing, Great River might be easier but the parking is better at White's Landing (Childs River). I would guestimate the row to be 45 minutes max in a yak, and most of it in very secluded estuary waters. Actually, because you wouldn't need to pay any attention to bouys the paddle might be less than 45 minutes... any other opinions?

The intent of my post was to say "if you don't bring your kayak you won't feel slighted", there are enough seats so that a few of us take a shore shift on Sunday and the rest of the time we will all be lucky guests of the generous boat owners who make this all work.

Of course, you may want to bring it. That's up to you. It would be a very pleasant paddle, that's for certain. Kayakers were working the pods between the jetties very effectively last year.

Originally I might have sounded like "we are in trouble please bring your yak" and I just wanted to clarify that there is no such problem.

I'll beach it on Sunday morning. Just tell me where to meet the shuttle.

juro Craig -

Since it's motorized and able to move other passengers it would be very useful, if it's not too much trouble. Some of the big boats are anchored a little ways out and your canoe would definitely come in handy.

Under calm conditions it would get you to the jetties or over to the Eel River inlet very nicely where there is some great shore fishing. I'd say yes, that would be very useful.

I think I'll bring a small fiberglass rowboat along, it can take a passenger and all my gear except for tables. It doubles as a dinghy for getting people out to their boats. If someone would tow me out to the jetties it would let me choose which side to fish during my shore shift. It can take one passenger for shuttling.

With Terry's and any other boats that can drag up onto shore, that should be plenty for the shorefront dinghy duties.

Should I plan on bringing my canoe? What time will people be meeting on Sunday morning and where will they meet (White's)? If I bring the canoe I can shuttle some gear and one rider, along with towing another craft over.

Not sure if yaks are needed...

Boneclave 2001 - We are going to be short by a couple of seats for riders on Sunday, but I don't know if you'd want to bother with the kayak - I wouldn't bother unless you are really dying to use it. If a few people take one half day shift on terra firma (grat spot too) everyone gets a turn out on a boat on Sunday. You'd get dropped off on the way out at dawn, and then jump on a boat when the boats come back in mid-day during the "shift" change.

After Sunday there is no problem. By Tuesday there are more spots open than people to fill them, plus everyone will know where the fish are hanging out.

Special thanks to the boat owners who volunteered to run shifts, this will make a big difference for extra clavers on Sunday.
