The BK Paddling Committee is losing our wonderful boat storage in Amherst and we need to move our boats and related gear soon.
Do you have a potential space for us? Do you know anyone who might?
AND → We are also selling about half of our boats, which includes sea kayaks, whitewater kayaks, open boats, etc. Plus, our inventory includes life jackets, paddles, etc. THE PRICE IS RIGHT! (Make us an offer…)

Warner Pond, just a few yards off Route 47 and bordered by Warner Hill and North Hadley farmlands, was a relaxing two-plus hour paddle last Saturday under a sun and puffy cloud blue sky. Swans with their cygnets, painted turtles, and a maze of blossoming Pond and Swamp Dock Lilies greeted us as we slowly meandered past a shoreline teaming with the signs and sounds of plant and animal life.
"Quietwater" paddling means scenic canoeing or kayaking on lakes, ponds, and relatively calm rivers. Western Massachusetts has some splendid rivers and lakes for quietwater canoeing. We'll take you there, and we can even help provide you with a boat and gear.
