Re: Block Island - Just kayaks or with cars?

: How do we handle the ferry with the kayak and gear?

There are a couple of parking lots near the ferry. We used one across the street last year. Last year, everyone that was smart put their kayaks on wheels and strolled onto the ferry with them. The people directing the loading let us go first and showed us just where to put the kayaks. Only one wretched soul was foolish enough to try and carry his kayak, paddling clothes, life preserver, spray skirt, paddles, water, extra gear, to the ferry on his shoulder. What a jerk. I'm sure going to use wheels this year.

By the way, there are good size lockers you can rent on the island, so you can change and not have to take everyting in your kayak. Some of the wheels even fit in the lockers, although I'm skeptical about the larger ones.
