I know what you mean about the washing machine. The bid stinkboaters that cruise along at half-plane ( nose way in the air stance) throw up a huge wake. Quite often they'll break plane to half-plane as they pass close by, figuring they're doing you a favour. The Miss Midland and the Georgian Queen are not so bad with their wake, but I've had to do some quick manouvering to stay out of their way in that narrow area.
We considered Collingwood and Meaford as they are closer to home but we've been in the Honey Harbour area for years and know the region well and wanted to be nearer the islands than spending all day crossing Georgian Bay.
I'll keep the Northeast area for future cruisng. Kilbear Park and the North Channel have been "dream" destinations for years. We did Kilbear this year and have to do Kilarney next year. After that we'll probably explore the in-between areas.
