Which boat, and where's the gear
The boat's a chesapeake light craft Yare, weighs about 25 pounds, takes about forty hours to build from plans. As for the missing gear, the fishing rod's on deck, the knife's on deck, the herring is in the bag on the deck, and the pfd....errr...oops: it's stashed behind the seat.
Weasel, to launch in Gloucester try: Pebble Beach in Rockport, Front Beach in Rockport, Pavillion Beach/Greasy Pole in Gloucester, on the inner harbor and near the fisherman's statue...for starters.Also there's Corliss Landing in Gloucester, off Wheeler's Point, which give you access to the Annisquam River flats. Also Granite Pier, in Rockport, the only place that's not free to launch and park. I think they charge $6.
