I get the same feeling when the Massholes mention Boston or something. I just tell 'em I'm not hungry and I don't like chicken anyway.

Not many options in the north Lake. That is L. Michigan for those of you from the east that assume we know what you are talking about all the time.

Sailboats, Inc. in Manitowac, Wi, or Bay Breeze in Traverse City, Mi are about your only choices. Manitowoc about 60 miles, TC about 100 NM. However, I think you will find a few companies that do captained charters in the area if you do the searches.

Good Luck

T34C has a spectacular aura about T34C has a spectacular aura about T34C has a spectacular aura about
Snug Harbor in Sturgeon Bay rents, but I think only smaller boats right now. There is another charter company that used to be run out of Egg Harbor but has moved to Ephraim (?) I think. I can check into the name and let you know. Not sure if the bareboat or not, will also check that out. I'm in Egg Harbor now so shouldn't take long to sort it out.

For a fee, I know a Beautiful Classic Yacht that can be had.

Thanks for the replies. I was hoping for something around a 30 footer since it will just be the wife and I. I'll probably just end up with more of a land based trip to Door County. Stay in a B&B and take a couple of daysails on the smaller boats. Should be fun either way.

It is slim pickings up there with regards to charters. I chartered an Pearson 303 from Sailboats Inc out of Sturgeon Bay a number of years ago, but I believe they have closed that charter base. Manitowoc would be the closest. Since I believe the loveliest part of Door County is Fish Creek and north, it would be a real hike from Manitowoc to get there.

If you do find something, please post back here and let us know.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That explains a lot for us little pond sailors. We do bow to you true sailors of the vast blue oceans.
