I wrote the guidebook 'AMC's Best Sea Kayaking in New England,' as well as a number of articles in sea kayaking and outdoor magazines, and will soon have a new book out about a two-month sea kayak journey my wife and I took along the Maine coast.

Wat ik aanbied

Sportuitrusting en Outdoor-uitrusting
Sea kayaks or canoe and related gear. I have several 'performance' sea kayaks (about 22" wide, fast, agile) and a 22.5' double that can accommodate paddlers less certain of abilities (and it goes fast). We also have a canoe.

Wat je mee moet nemen

Water shoes or sandals that can get wet
Rain jacket or wind shell
Sunglasses
A light sweater or other warm layer
Camera (we can provide dry bags)
