This morning at about 3:00 am we pulled up at Hopedale Marina with high hopes for opening morning of duck season. I was with my 5 year old son.

What we found was the owner of Hopedale Marina yelling at everyone pulling up to launch their boats. My 5 year old son was scared to get out of the truck. Anyone who asked him a question, or to further clarify his directions, the owner's response was yelling and screaming, in addition to frantically running around.

It was a horrible experience for me and my son.

I wonder how many people shared the same experience this morning.

Any help on finding another launch close by the area would be appreciated.

Thank you very much
