Thing is, I live inland a bit, but about equal distance (less than 2 hrs) from Superior and Upper Michigan...bout 140 mile to Green Bay...160 to Oshkosh
I don't see leaving the boat in one place for the long term when there are other waters to explore and I'm not close enough to run out for just a 2 hr or 4 hr "sail" anywhere big enough for this boat, so the basic plan is to use the boat for a "weekend", going day sailing and maybe tieing on to the city dock for the night or mooring in the harbor or lee side of island...
Kind of an "on water camper" and I've seen some massive campers getting towed down the road, so a 26' boat, while bigger than most trailer sailers, isn't going to be the biggest thing I've had to haul around..
I know I'm pushing the upper boundries of "Trailer Sailing" but I'm OK with it's limited use vs comfort level when we do spend time on the boat. I live in the middle of a thousand lakes in northern Wisconsin, but most all of them are smaller shallow "fishing" lakes... a couple are deep enough, but none are big enough to justify this size boat, so I won't be doing much "daysailing" round here...
