Haul out when

I don't sail on Lake Michigan any longer (I'm now in the Bahamas and don't worry about hard water any more) but I used to launch in April and haul as late as the yard would let me. My latest sail was Thanksgiving week and it's really a kick to sail in the snow. Our marina bubbled the docks and for a number of years I only hauled to paint the bottom. One particularly mild year the bubblers kept the whole little bay around the marina clear and some brave souls sailed in all 12 months. It must have been a pain to winterize the engine monthly but the bragging rights were surely worth it.

"gitche gumee" is lake superior and no boat can't tame it.

ps: just cruise alone it can be quite satisfying

In more simplified translation (from Ojibwe), it means 'big water'

We wet store in the river and slip the boat in Waukegan. We usually leave the river the frist week of April, haul out at Larsen's for paint + maint., and are in the slip by April 15. This year we headed down to Chicago Nov.14, which is typical.
