Re: Feasibility of cruising the Great Lakes in small steps

Mike, many thanks for your anchorage tips, this sounds great and with Active Captain I was able to follow along where you went. Planning a trip is half the fun, and you gave me plenty pointers.

Re: Feasibility of cruising the Great Lakes in small steps

Mike,

your tip about Active Captain was worth the price of admission - I can't believe I didn't know this before... There are many dozens of places to choose from in Detroit alone, and their...

Re: Feasibility of cruising the Great Lakes in small steps

Hi Mike,

thanks a lot for your reply. I will possibly stick to the Canadian side of Lake Huron on my second leg, if there are enough intermediate stops to anchor/dock for the night. I'm single...

Camaraderie, that's a fascinating idea. I'm glad for the information that State registration will not do. I thought I remember a thread when the advantages of Documentation where discussed, but I...

Oh no, I didn't know that just a state registration only could be trouble in some countries. Maybe I need to get US citizenship after all. Have been in the US for 12 years anyway, might as well do...

I guess I'm too German, should never have asked that. :) I'll just register it in Illinois too like my other boat. You are right, noone ever asked whether the boat was actually in Illinois at all!

Hi guys,

I have a question about registration - my situation is pretty special and I apologize if this is not the right place to ask and if nobody has an answer.

Thanks guys so far! It's pretty encouraging. I think I'll have a look at the boat here and see if I fall for her.

Nonsuch 30 for long term cruising

Thanks for that pointer - I'll have to dig into their web site a little more. Haven't found much about the C&C33 and cruising capabilities, most people talk about its racing potential.
