T34C First, there doesn't appear to be any bareboat charters in DC. (that's Door County for those of you geographically challenged. ((SD)) ). The place I was thinking might only offers chartered daysails with their captain. They call them "barefoot" cruises because they want you to take your shoes off! Not exactly what you're looking for but they do have a pretty sweet fully re-done Cal-40 that they just splashed last year.

Only other place is Snug Harbor in Sturgeon Bay, but only small boats. Owners name is John. I've talked to him a couple times, pretty nice guy.

Dog- I think you should read you own signature. I quick bit of research (google) would have revealed that the only Door County is in North East Wisconsin and in the event there is another out there somewhere it is likely some landlocked area of WY, not a renowned sailing destination refered to by Cruising World as one of the best cruising destination in the US, and named after the famous and once feared "Deaths Door" that served as the final resting place for many sailing ships and their crews....

welshwind It is slim pickings up there with regards to charters. I chartered an Pearson 303 from Sailboats Inc out of Sturgeon Bay a number of years ago, but I believe they have closed that charter base. Manitowoc would be the closest. Since I believe the loveliest part of Door County is Fish Creek and north, it would be a real hike from Manitowoc to get there.

If you do find something, please post back here and let us know.

GrittySchu Thanks for the replies. I was hoping for something around a 30 footer since it will just be the wife and I. I'll probably just end up with more of a land based trip to Door County. Stay in a B&B and take a couple of daysails on the smaller boats. Should be fun either way.

T34C Snug Harbor in Sturgeon Bay rents, but I think only smaller boats right now. There is another charter company that used to be run out of Egg Harbor but has moved to Ephraim (?) I think. I can check into the name and let you know. Not sure if the bareboat or not, will also check that out. I'm in Egg Harbor now so shouldn't take long to sort it out.

For a fee, I know a Beautiful Classic Yacht that can be had.

tommyt Not many options in the north Lake. That is L. Michigan for those of you from the east that assume we know what you are talking about all the time.

Sailboats, Inc. in Manitowac, Wi, or Bay Breeze in Traverse City, Mi are about your only choices. Manitowoc about 60 miles, TC about 100 NM. However, I think you will find a few companies that do captained charters in the area if you do the searches.

Good Luck
