Re: Circling Door County

Hey jlaprad, what kind of boat are you building? I'm building a tender in my basement this winter.

Re: Circling Door County

Thanks for posting pictures Sailortjk1. This is motivation to get my boat built. This is where we plan to take our first cruise.

Oh, Tim, nice sunset trip Friday!
Sorry about not answering sooner. I spent a week shaking down the boat on the Green bay side of Door County then was forced to cut the trip short due to medical problems. So after all my plans I was out for only 1 week this season. However after a few short stays in the local hospital I am turning my med problems around. With all the prepwork from this year I will be ready to hit the water all summer next season.

My boy had a great time and was able to keep his cool when I had my medical problems.

With my health and mobility problems The 26ft Paceship will be too much for me to singlehand when my son is still in school so I picked up a used 21ft Bayliner Liberty for Trailer boating in spring and fall next year and plan on using the sailboat in Lake Michigan and possibly pulling up to the big lake for a sail to Isle Royale in the summer

Re: Circling Door County

Two thumbs up for everybody!

Holland is a commercial port, therefore we get dredged every other year, thankfully.
No issues in my immediate area and still 13.5' in our skip. This is actually down 1' sinxe the start of the season.
Other Ports all up and down the shore having extreme difficulties.
We anchored in Saugatuck three weeks ago, very little room to swing for more than 4 - 5 boats and we plowed a channel in the mud to find 6 feet of water just off of Coral Cables.

We completed our Door County cruise in August and had a great trip. While Door County and the harbors/ports were great, the highlight for us was crossing Lake Michigan. You can read our trip report and see a few pictures here: Door County Cruisin'

I don't know about the OP but the Admiral and I did 10 days cruising the GB side of Door County the first two weeks in September.

Waters were a little thin in most areas and entry/exit from most marinas & anchorages was done with extreem care. The dock master at Wave Pointe Marina (Little Sturgeon Bay) said the lake levels were so low near Green Bay that quite a few boats were trapped in their Marinas/slips for a good part of the season.

A good number of the bigger boats in the Milwaukee area hauled early as the waters here vanished. We have a boat or two that can only get out of their slips if the crew is off the boat and picked up at the fuel dock.

And thanks Tim for all of your input

Re: Circling Door County

See. I knew Tim would show up!

The glaciers were very friendly to the West and North sides of Door County. They are beautiful rock faces and deep. You can sail right up to the W side of Washington Is cliffs in many places. The E and S sides are shallow. Check your charts and have a good time. Make sure you make your entry to Rock Island from the right side. You cannot get in from the W.
