No. As he said: This was at his marina, on Lake Erie.

Taking a wild guess at approximately where the OP's marina might be, and that what was meant was Au Gres (pronounced "oh gray") (I'm guessing Au Gres was what was meant by "Auglaize," since there is no "Auglaize" or "Auglaise" in Michigan, that I've ever heard of or been able to find.), looks to be a 250-300 mile trip. Better than 60 miles of it upstream, under motor, against an average 4 kt. current.

If I'm right: That's a helluva trip, first time out. In a new boat.

I wonder how their beer calculations are holding up?
