If I were making the run from Fayette to St. Ignace, I'd go offshore during a good weather window and use anchorages in the islands. Obviously, St. James harbor on Beaver Island is well protected and has proved a popular anchorage. With your draft, you may also be able to take advantage of the anchorage in the bay on the SE side of Garden Island. Closer to St. Ignace, you can try the anchorage on the NE corner of St. Helena island if you have the right wind (or no wind). There may also be opportunities for anchoring at Summer Island and Little Summer Island closer to Fayette, but I haven't been there personally. The southern coast of the U.P. doesn't have much in the way safe anchoring, so it might be better to be offshore.
