“Kayaking for all” is their motto! They are Community Boating, Inc. (CBI), located on the Charles River Esplanade between the Hatch Shell and the Longfellow Bridge. Most importantly, they are the nation's oldest. If you live in the Back Bay or Beacon Hill, it is a great opportunity to kayak whatever your skills are. This sketch is right front of the building. I was sitting on the bank to breath from my usual walk.
