Thanks sailortjk1!

I don't mind a 30 mile crossing from Michigan City, but I think crossing from anywhere much north of that would be a bit too much for my family if we encountered any bad weather.

I actually think I prefer a mooring ball to a transient slip, just because it saves on cost and we rarely use shorepower or water hook-ups anyway. Plus, we like to get some use out of the dink!

We stayed at Eldean's for two nights last summer. Remember the big roll cloud storm that passed through on a Wednesday evening? We were there that night and the next. Eldean's was a nice retreat and we'll definately be back for at least a couple of nights this coming summer.
