this will be a tidal trip and the time is subject to tides once I nail down the tides for the area I will adjust the gather together time. 12' boats or longer with sealed bulk head's and safety gear pump paddle float whistle/horn ect. please review the location on Google earth map coordinates are N[masked] W[masked] . I would say the trip with a lunch break on the isle should last about 3.5 - 4.5 hours unless we decide to venture to deer island park I would recommend spray skirt's we will have to keep an eye on wind and surf conditions prior to trip date. as far as I know there are no rental places near bye also last time I used the public landing I was charged 5 dollars for ramp and parking use.
OK high tide is at 9:26 am and low tide is at 3:00 so be ready to be on the water around 10 am. bring plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks for when we break on the isle the total distance is around 9+ miles more if we go to Deere island.
Please keep in mind this is subject to wind and surf these. criteria below is recommended I leave up to your self to know your limits for this trip
