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).
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
