'Give you joy of the launch', as they said in the olden days.
My CLC boat isn't even perched on the ways yet, much less swimming, and she still has a ways to go. But I did take my thoroughly modern Old Town kayak for her 2004 shakedown cruise this evening on the dreaded Class Zero-and-a-half rapids of the Little Miami between, roughly, Foster's tavern, and the jumpin' grounds of the Loveland, OH, Music festival, and I can relate! What a wonderful feeling to be back in the water again. Just being "on" the water would be fantastic, but "in" is a preposition that applies only to the kayak. It adds even more to the wonderfulness of "messing about in small boats".
You speak of boating in the Adirondacks, and I could have related to that, too, a long time ago. Enjoy!
