I'd like to paddle this weekend, too, and the tides look favorable for an MBK launch and return. Anyone who can't get into the main group is welcome to enjoy this wonderful natural habitat from the other end. On the water at 10 (so, briefing at 9:45--I'll be there at about 9:30). We might try to meet up with the main group at some point (VHF Channel 71) (lunch in Rubis Creek, or even further inland?), and there's a steep outbound tide in the afternoon, so we should have a limo ride back to MBK, where we can rinse boats and gear. Wild people might like to go even further and poke their noses out into the bay (twist my arm).
