Also a short motor to Valcour Island w/ plenty of protected coves. Over cocktails and weather reports I decide whether to go N or ...

Re: Narrow Dodger

I've got the narrow dodger on my M. Need to remove for trailering but that takes just minutes. Major improvement, makes the cabin feel much larger especially when its raining.

Re: A Pennsylvania Lake to Dip In?

Excellent! I'm thinking maybe somewhere around there to break the trip in half and do a motel for much needed showers. Thanks.

A Pennsylvania Lake to Dip In?

We'll be cruising out of Point Lookout Maryland for a week or so in early May. However hauling back to upstate NY I'd like to find a lake close by I-81 where I can dip the boat and trailer in to wash off the salt. Any suggestions? :macm:

Re: Dinghy Talk

Bought a used 8' Walker Bay. Way too tipsy getting in but it rowed nicely! I bought & installed the inflatable things on the sides. All good now! I have a 2hp Honda so planing isn't an aspiration.

Re: Dodger/gas tanks

I believe only the wide dodger will connect to the full enclosure. Does the BWY tank fit with the seat down?
