Re: Can I make this trip as a novice
You guys are not doing your homework...!!! The distance the OP is calling 100 miles is in fact OVER 200 MILES. Go to Active Captain or look at the charts. Check out the reefs and shallow water in Saginaw Bay, the 250 mile fetch of Lake Huron with a north wind, the rock reef at Point Au Barques, the St. Clair River which is one of the busiest commercial shipping channels in the country with ships from all over the world, 1,000' long Great Lakes Freighters, ferry boats, tugs and barges, fishing boats, etc.
Like I said before, I have made this trip many times, and I would not want to do it solo!
