New row boater

Hello all

First think I am new to the paddle or row boat community.

I have a 17’ row boat. Similar to a guide boat or just a little wider then a canoe. I am trying to find some nice calm location to get some experience with my new boat. It is on a trailer. And at 150 pounds it may be just to heavy to carry to a launch site.

Any information would be great.

Located in Fort Mill SC. Sorry

One Idea
Across the top of this page are a bunch of topics. Click the one called “Go Paddling”, and then the launch-site map. There may be lots of options shown in your area, with descriptions by people who have been there.

We used to launch our kayaks at the boat ramp that was adjacent to the Buster Boyd Bridge.
I believe that is route 49.
That was about thirty years ago. It might still be there - check it out

Also, check out Cane Creek Park in Union County, NC.
There is a small lake where we paddled several times.
It is just over the border in NC not far from Fort Mill
