Newbie from West Michigan

I am new here, and have been a lurker for a while on several different forums, I am currently reading, and doing some sailing on others boats, but someday I plan on owning an old plastic classic, I love to sail and grew up on a boat. I am more than willing to help crew on SW Lake Michigan if anyone needs or wouldn't mind an extra hand, I am trying to sell my second home and business, till then I am stuck without a boat...my business takes up all my time.

Thanks for being out there, I am amazed how much information, and how helpfull people are out on the net...

Scott

Right now living in Allegan, but have sailed with friends out of Holland and Saugatuck...had a Catalina 22 and 25 in Anchorage Marina years ago. How about you Lake Superior Sailor...?? Would love to spend some time in the Apostles..when I have a HITW... I actually would be looking for a project boat someday...love to tinker..ok, it would be more than tinker...rebuild...

Re: Newbie from West Michigan

I am more inclined to head for Isle Royale, It's a wild place & offers steady wind. I'm out of Ontonagon, Michigan Marina. Great sailing area! Contact me if you want sometime in the summer , I sail all the weekends....Dale

Isle Royale, boy do I remember that place!! The bugs were horrendous...gave a new meaning to Michigans "other" state bird. Good Old Boat had a write up last fall about the Apostles...but Isle Royale is only like 50 miles or so from you, nice sail..I would love to go w/ ya sailing, just have to make the long trek...google put it at 9 plus hour drive...have to make it a few day trip, the Porqies are right there, have not been there for a while either...the U.P. is such a nice place...except for all that snow.

Re: Newbie from West Michigan

I did say summer , but if the bugs bother you , we could try hard water sailing, makes the miles go faster. Apostles, are as close a run, just slower around the Islands! Lots to do & lots of waterfalls to see....Dale

Re: Newbie from West Michigan

Sailing the Great Lakes again is my dream. Years ago we lived in SW Michigan (St Joseph) and sailed Gitchigumie with a friend who owned a 38 O;D
ay. We now live near St Louis, MO, sail our 37Endeavour on the Mississippi. Lord willing, we will sell our house this spring and move onto the boat. If it happens early enough in the spring, our first goal will be the Nort Channel. Winter in Pensacola, probably get to the Apostles next year.
