This particular kayak is a Manatee, branded by the LL Bean company, but actually a Perception Prodigy EXP boat with a different logo on the side. As with anything made by Perception the construction is high quality and very rugged. I’d go as far to say that these stubby little boats are indestructible! They’re stable, track reasonably well, and are easily lifted (or dragged!) over land. Their only limitations are a lack of speed, and the fact that they are not suited to open waters. (Ah.)
Launch Point: End of Sebonac Inlet Road.
Winds: South, light.
Air Temperature: 70F
Water Temperature: 48F in the channel.
Total Distance (with meandering!): About 2 miles.
Just a series of pictures, some with comments:
The launch point, and the channel through which I would return later.
General views of the wetlands.
A Horseshoe crab. These benign creatures are an indicator of healthy water quality. They are actually related to the spider family, and are said to have not evolved over two million years. (Wait a sec, I know some people like that!)
The second channel heading out into Peconic Bay. Little Sebonac Creek is to the right of this photo. That's to be paddled another day.
