Thanks to all responders
Well I am impressed! Thank you all for the welcomes. In particular, it is nice to see so many nearby sailors.
bljones - I read in some FAQ somewhere that Ontario was the right lake...
xort- I am a fan of the big red maple leaf, the little blue one never did it for me. The last time I was interested in the NHL, Buffalo didn't have a team.
jskrypek - That's great, the ice isn't even fully gone and I've already met a neighbour! Our spot is somewhere on the 'C' dock.
Patrick - Looking forward to it, I preferred the west end, largely for proximity to home, but I think there are also more interesting day sails available from here, than if my slip was to east, ie. Bluffers or Frenchman's Bay.
Thanks again everyone for making me feel welcome, just be prepared for a flood of questions, as I get her ready for refloating, restepping, rerigging, repairing, replacing, repainting, replumbing, refinishing, rewiring, re-insuring, relocating,
and hopefully prior to refreezing,
