2019 tour of North River launching sites.

I haven’t done this in a while, but we took a quick tour of the common launching points on the North River; between Scituate and Hanover.

The Driftway park and boat ramp in Scituate is open to car-top boats and powerboats.  Clean and usually has portta-johnnies on site.

Tide this day was unusually high.

Located near the bridge over the river between Norwell and Marshfield and situated in Marshfield.

At times in the past I’ve found this area to be trashed, literally.  Somebody went to a great deal of trouble to clean the area up this year.  I thank them, very much.

The Pembroke Town Landing on the North River is located at the end of Brick Klin Lane in Pembroke.

Very limited space for parking and at times tricky for passenger cars to traverse to rough dirt road.  No sign off the road to mark the entrance.  The rich prick who lives at the end of the road keeps ripping it down.

The Old Washington Street Bridge between Pembroke and Hanover qualifies as a launch spot, but parking an issue and the way down is steep and rough.

Current is very swift except at near dead low or high tide.  At low tide there isn’t enough water under the boat to paddle.

The Hanover Car-top launch at the Indian Head River.   The Indian Head River is a tributary of the North River, very shallow at low tide.  Plenty of parking.

Launch reports from years pass.
