"Doc" Bob,
We made the trip from Lake St. Clair to Northport this week. Had a big blow Wednesday near Gravelly Shoal with sustained 25kts and gusts to 31kts. We were motoring under bare poles when it hit and it lasted about 45 minutes.
We considered going into the Augres River instead of Northport 'cause of the meager channel there. At 5:45pm I called on the VHF for depth information at the river mouth but couldn't raise anyone at the State dock or at the Augres Yacht Club. I even called the State Dock on the cell phone and no answer. We finally entered Northport after the wind and waves subsided.
Can you tell me the depth at the mouth for future reference? Also, do you know the status of the State Dock? And finally, what's a pirate festival?
