Considering that the OP has been in Presque Island Marina for over a year, your post really doesn't make much sense.

Presque Isle bay is great. once you start going there you will laugh at Marain state park. Lake Erie is good sailing in the summer months, if its too rough you can usually still sail along the coast East of Erie or stay in the Bay. If the Winds are out of the North East, just stay in the Bay.
I have been sailing out of Erie Pa for over 30 years. I had a trailerable Macgregor 26D and spent many nights in Marina Lake or I would sail across Lake Erie and drop anchor at long point lighthouse in Canada. There are some small towns if you cross the bay further into Canada.
30 miles west in Conneat Ohio. You can drop anchor there, they have some small restraunts there. .
North East Pa is 15 miles East, I usually pull in after dark and tie off at the launch ramp overnight. 1 good restraunt.
Barcelonia New York is another 12 miles East, Its a protected entrance and you can stay at the dock for $10.00 a night. A few good restraunts within walking distance.
I ended up buying a Macgegor 26X with a 50HP motor, I got tired of trailering my boat. I keep my boat at BayHarbour East. the old cherry street marina. they have a few slips available in the 25` A docks, but whats left is a really long walk out to the end. I was in A44. Its a really nice place, and very nice people, but I am amazed that most of these people dont use thier boats. Thats good cause the restrooms only have 3 showers and 2 toilets.
Fresh coffe, Ice, laundry, picnic area with grills and sinks. I Use my boat more than any other sailors docked there.
Commodore Perry Yacht club is between BayHarbour East and BayHarbour West. Two years ago they extended the concrete wall and there is room to expand for a few hundred boats.
I Live west of Pittsburgh. You can see my roof from I-79 when you get to the crafton moon run exit at route 60.
I get from my house to Marina in 2 hours at 65 mph.
Right now I am Laid-off, I hope I can afford to go sailing this summer.
Good Luck.. Hope to see you around.

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.
