Put in at 3:00 and paddle around the area for a while. Std. trip is normally up to the bridge, down to the backwaters, pop out on the east river and back to the marina. Distance can be 6 to 10 miles depending upon where we actually decide to go. I'm using this to make sure my sea kayak is properly rigged for the HLC Jaunt, so it is more probable to be closer to 6 than 10 miles.
