    @CutterCaptain Westrec doesn't control the Playpen, but they do control South Monroe. The terms of the special anchorage there delegates control to the Park District, which then delegated to Westrec. That doesn't mean the whole lake is free from city rules.

    Colregs ignorance

    It's not meaningless, the Diver Down flag is state law in a lot of places.

    The cops weren't even responding to medium priority calls like domestic violence during the unrest, it makes sense they would temporarily abandon lakefront patrols.

    Just put out by Illinois today. These apply for Phases 3 and 4, so highly likely to be in effect through July. It's my understanding the Mac requires some of the largest boats to have more than 8 crew. https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/RestoreIL_DOCS/Boating Guidance - updated.pdf

    @Keysrock35 There is an existing small beer can scene at Hammond. Think they averaged 3 boats last year. The organizer once tried to recruit me, but unfortunately I have forgotten the contact info. Recruiting crew is basically insurmountable for me. There is a Hammond Marina Facebook group you can join, they would know.

    I recently dug that up and put it in the Chicago Boaters Facebook group, so you prob got it indirectly from me. http://chicago-il.elaws.us/code/coor_t10_ch10-40_arti_sec10-40-010 @sidmon If you stay with your boat, you're asked to leave during business hours when the storm breaks. If you leave the boat, you're ticketed and banned from the harbors. Maybe towed.

    Before anyone thinks about racing, you have to get the harbors open. Lightfoot is saying the Lakefront won't open when we hit Phase 3, which might happen at the end of the month. If you do somehow get your boat in the water, the CPD Marine Unit said all recreational boating in Chicago is banned. You guys night have to hang out with me in Hammond. My main is 20 years old, but it's in the water. Just heard today that the larger slips are now full.

    I can tell you the crane is between 45'-49' above the water because they haul me up in a chair once in a while. The harbormaster once told me they don't like to lift masts more than approximately 50' due to weight, regardless of air draft. He was too busy to handle me last week, will try again starting Wednesday. Due to virus related staffing problems, he only wants to do crane stuff W-F.

    Spoke to the office today, they also mentioned the high water affecting the mast crane, though my 34' mast was fine.

    @Keysrock35 I'm planning to use the Hammond crane this afternoon. The harbormaster didn't know anything about a closure when I spoke to him yesterday.

    well this is bullshit

    This issue isn't whether you're more likely to contract the disease, it's whether you are doing something important enough to accept some risk. In the US, exercising is deemed essential. After a couple layers of interpretation, Michigan deemed sailing to constitute exercising. New York and Maryland decided it doesn't.

    well this is bullshit

    In Michigan, sailing is allowed but powerboats are not. Being able to use auxiliary motor sailboats is uncertain, but I would bet on yes. https://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-350-79137_79770_98458---,00.html#boat

    We don't have to shelter until there are no more cases. We have to shelter until new cases drops enough that we can contact trace and test everyone with a fever, everyone they contacted and key groups like nursing home employees

    well this is bullshit

    There is a reason you're allowed to go outside. The last thing the US needs from a health perspective is for everyone to give up on exercising. I caught a nice break that Indiana deemed marinas essential, so I'll be working on my boat next week.
