    Excellent! BTW, I'll need to be back at the put-in point by 2pm...are you ok if I peel off early to go back? I've been kayaking for about 10 yrs now, mostly sea kayaking, and although I don't have a bomb-proof roll, I can wet-exit and self-rescue with confidence!

    That's good, because I'd like to go in to see some of the larger boats. Is there any type of beach area or dockage available?

    Ed I have walked around and looked at the show and no one has ever asked me for a ticket so I wouldn't worry about it.

    No boat show ticket needed, unless you plan on walking around inside the Seaport. We stay mostly in the water.
