Well, finally bought a boat after mbeing a member for a year and plan on taking her out this weekend for her maiden paddle...was going to launch at 18th St. on the South Side and head up the Mon for 7-8 miles...anything I should be aware of or pay attention to?

your progress will be limited by the Braddock lock and dam which I think is less then 7 or 8 miles.

From the Point lock 2 on the mon is at mile 11
Biggest thing watch for tow boats. Stay out of the channel

My maiden voyage up the Mon to Homestead went well, and this weekend I paddled from 18th St. to the Point then up the Allegheny to Washington's Landing and back...this weekend hope to do 18th Street down the Ohio and up Chartiers Creek and back....that will give me all three rivers...any other suggestions for the 3 rivers or other local places to go?
