I will be looking for storage options, too.
That's very kind of you Down. I would love to stop in and get the lay of the islands around your area. And I'd be happy to share what I know (or what I've learned). Your trip sounds great. Duluth is a wonderful destination. Be sure to make time for the Superior north shore. It's wild, rugged and beautiful (as long as you like wilderness sailing).
