outdoors and love to kayak and be outside. Scott actually introduced me to the ocean and the working waterfront. I really didn’t have any knowledge or experience about it before I met him. We have been together for 17 years and I have been part of the business for about 12 of those years.” Brandy grew up in Lyman and spent a lot of time on rivers, lakes and ponds. “I didn’t fi sh a lot and my dad didn’t really fi sh that much,” explained Brandy. “I have learned, I have researched, it was kind of sink or swim, that is what it is been like. I have learned to adapt.”

What Brandy loves to do is rent the kayaks. She said, “I love that because it is something that I do. This harbor is absolutely pristine and beautiful. It has so much wild- life here. There are so many things that you can see. Although it is very tide dependent and a lot of people don’t understand that. To get a person in a boat and to have them experience the harbor from that perspective is one of my favorite things. “We have been doing the kayaks for I am going to say 10 years,” continued Brandy. “We don’t rent ocean kayaks. We rent versatile kayaks that you could use anywhere. A lot of people think that because they are going to be used in the ocean they need the really long ones that you can get stuck in. Ours have a very wide open cock-

pit. They can accommodate just about any person, any size or age. We have 10 foot, 12 foot and 14-foot tandems. We recently switched over to Old Town kayaks, because we wanted to do our business local. They are a real durable kayak. We can do 42 people at a time and we rent them out multiple times a day on the tide. Because we only have a four hour window on the tide we are limited. A two hour rental costs $25 for a single and $40 for a tandem. We also don’t limit children. We leave it up to the discretion of the parent as long as we have a life jacket that will fi t that child.

They also have some jet skis, but they

limit that. They do not want people to be too crazy out there. With Memorial Day behind us the stripers are running as the temperatures of the water warms and the bait fi sh arrive. As for kayaks and canoes they do not rent much before Memorial Day due to the water tem- perature and that their rescue skiff is usually not in yet. At Labor Day the tourist season has slowed drastically. However they still do some fi shing right up to Columbus Day. Also with the water still warm they will continue to rent kayaks and canoes right to the end of October.

If you are looking for a good boat yard for your boat, or just want to do some fi sh- ing or kayaking, do not miss stopping by Web hannet River Boat Yard. It is certainly one of the jewels of our coast.
