    I have a 15' solo canoe. Is this ok for your trip? I grew up paddling on the Oyster and know it well, know the tides, am an accomplished paddler.

    Hi Neil.. I have a 14 ft Necky with front and rear bulkheads and a drop down skeg but I am only a level one. Did the Adams Point up the other river to New Market with you guys no problem. Is this paddle more of a challenge? Sounds like we will be going with the tide. OK to put my name on the wait list?

    Do you mean going to from Adam's Point by Jackson labs to Durham Town landing (Jackson's Landing)?
    Not sure what you mean but it sounds fun.
