Enjoy your trip as well. It’ll be time to pull the boats out of storage shortly after returning up north though!
No kidding. The Great Lakes are under 50% now on the ice cover.
Still, we run ours on northern lake Michigan so we won’t launch until late June.
The dockhands in Straits State Harbor in Mackinaw City said they had ice in the marina past memorial Day last year.
We still have ice, but we start running winery cruises on May 8th. With maintenance items and outfitting figured in, We need 2-3 weeks to get them ready for sea trials, drills and customers!
Here’s hoping for a mild and dry spring!
I fear we won’t get onto our boat until July. A new full-time job is a nice income boost to go with my retirement, but it sucks starting as low man on the vacation time.
Still, we’ll make the best of it. And it looks like gas prices will be abit lower than the last few years. Gtta love that!
