Western Michigan water levels

Anyone know what the water levels are for the Western Michigan marinas from Chicago to Holland? I know they are down due to the mild winter.

Friend of mine in the Mac had the boat he was on dismasted in the storm. Must have been a real blow.

Might see you there if the blizzard that's supposed to hit Chicago doesn't ground our flight to Tortola Thursday. We'll be on a 343 Oceanis out of Sunsail.

Conch was OK

When we chartered with them. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable (much more casual atmosphere then Footloose and answered all questions).
Only complaint was the boat was a little rundown....

Not knowing the whole story either

There may be more to it. If his sails were shredded it tells me that he was in something a lot worse than just 20 knot winds for awhile...either that or those sails were in really BAD condition.

Wouldn't this just be a call to sea tow?

Don't understand why the CG had to get involved at all. :confused:

Oil Filter

Don't remember any mention of the oil filter either on whether that is counted in the 2.8 Liter..I added a little extra after I saw that ~ 3 liters drained out without the filter removed.

Wondered about those two yellow caps myself

I watched the video on the Yanmar website on maintenance procedures. They show both yellow caps but they only show oil being added to the top fill. I'm assuming that it is just another fill spout in...

I'm thinking that may have been the problem

I was running off the #2 battery which was low. I had just cranked the engine about a minute or two before the screen went dead so I was wondering if it was some kind of delayed reaction to a low...

PBeezer,

Wish I could take early retirement but my SO will have non of it - I don't think she wants to tell people her husband is 'retired' - makes her feel old I guess.

At 58 I've been thinking about how to keep sailing into my 80's myself. Thinking the stress reduction from being on the boat does a lot for extending the sailing years. Just wish I had the financial...
