Re: Review of my season on Georgian Bay

The sandbar near the fuel dock should be taken care of by the dredging, it was coming off of the breakwater at the entrance to that section. We were just told to stick to the middle and we'll be fine. At the lowest water this fall there was some difficulty getting a boat with 6'7 draft to the lift but even he was fine until he got close to the lift.

We'll definitely see you in the spring, we should be in slip 319 next year. Her name's Altera.

I hear ya. Be careful what you wish for....

You may find a few Wye ex-pats heading your way as the new rates have been announced. I know a couple of my friends are taking a look at Bay Moorings and Hindson.

Love to have you here. That way I can wave to you all the time.
I think Hindson is a good choice as well. It would have been our next pick after Bay Moorings. Not as deep though, and further down the bay.

Hey, you're the Hunter two slips down, good to hear from you. If i'm right I remember you waiting while the survey was done on your boat. I could feel your excitement from where I was sitting on the dock. We'll definitely meet in the spring. Love your boat , by the way.

Re: Review of my season on Georgian Bay

Were out of Bay Moorings in Penetang. What's your boats Name? We'll keep an eye out for you next summer. Will be at Hope or Beckwith more than a few times during the summer. I liked it on the West side of Georgian Bay, a lot less rocks to worry about.
