Thanks to all responders

Well I am impressed! Thank you all for the welcomes. In particular, it is nice to see so many nearby sailors.

bljones - I read in some FAQ somewhere that Ontario was the right lake...

xort- I am a fan of the big red maple leaf, the little blue one never did it for me. The last time I was interested in the NHL, Buffalo didn't have a team.

jskrypek - That's great, the ice isn't even fully gone and I've already met a neighbour! Our spot is somewhere on the 'C' dock.

Patrick - Looking forward to it, I preferred the west end, largely for proximity to home, but I think there are also more interesting day sails available from here, than if my slip was to east, ie. Bluffers or Frenchman's Bay.

Thanks again everyone for making me feel welcome, just be prepared for a flood of questions, as I get her ready for refloating, restepping, rerigging, repairing, replacing, repainting, replumbing, refinishing, rewiring, re-insuring, relocating,
and hopefully prior to refreezing,

patrickrea See you on the water! I tend to sail that direction early in the day when daysailing. That way the prevailing westerlies can send me home on a reach!

jskrypek I just bought a Bayfield 29 and also got a spot at Lake Promenade Marina. See you there.

TouchOGrey Thanks for the welcome
Currently she lies on (in?) her cradle at the PO's club. After stressing all winter about if and where we'd end up finding a slip we were lucky enough to get a spot at the Lakeshore Prommenade Marina. This is close to home and I will not have to deal with downtown's rush hour traffic on weekdays.
