Thanks for the welcome everyone. Artfuldodger, we have a deposit on a slip at Bayport Marina in Midland, Ontairo. Next summer will give us a chance to look around a little more. Thanks for the suggestion. We hope to arrive in Georgian Bay by mid May or whenever the waterways open. We plan to begin the trip north in late March using the ICW, Hudson river, Erie and Oswego Canals, Lake Ontario and the Trent waterway to get to Georgian Bay. This has already been a wonderful adventure and we haven't even started. Thanks again for the welcome. I'll try not to become known as "the stupid question power boat guy".
