WHOA.... Not cool. Now I'm second guessing. The two places that have launches convenient for me are Norwalk and Bridgeport. Bridgeport is nice because you get to open deep water within a mile from the launch. Norwalk looks like if the tide is low and the wind isn't in a good direction, I'm looking at 3.5 to 4 miles of motoring to get to the other side of the islands and open deep water....
The PFD for my dog is planned, good point. Also, I plan on leaving him home the first couple trips until we get used to the boat and the area.
