We're a few days - oh my, a week - into our shakedown cruise. I must say, I should have taken the advice I read somewhere in this forum. Please, everyone, heed the warnings... definitely don't sail the northern Lake Huron / Georgian Bay / North Channel.
The anchorages are crowded...
It's impossible to get a good view of the sunsets...
And there's simply no alone time.
In fact, we saw all kinds of traffic heading north... The only two boats we saw all day met at the same spot. Yes, really only two boats during a 5 hour sail.
Seriously though, we are still working out the bugs (pun intended) as we continue our trek around the Great Lakes. Engine is sorted, dinghy motor finally works (although we've only rowed so far), galley faucet fixed for $0.90 instead of $32.20, new head pump installed and ice box drain mostly cleaned out. The only thing left to work out is where to gunkhole for the next 6 days!
Any suggestions for the Killarney / Baie Fine / Little Current area? We draw 4 feet and want good scenery where we can dinghy to shore (yes, yes, we cruise with a dog). We've got 6-9 days left before we have to start the long slog back down Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie and finally across Lake Ontario.
