    Huron lake Saint Clair Detroit transit

    Bayview normally welcomes transients and I don't know what our current policy is - but our club is under construction, our temporary clubhouse sank, we are having the parking lot resurfaced - not sure it's where you want to be...  and yes, don't cross the border.

    Huron lake Saint Clair Detroit transit

    You're going the fun way. Suggest going out the South Channel rather than the cut off (it adds like 20 mins to your trip, but is much more scenic).  No real reason to stop along the way - downhill, it's only a 6 hour journey. Once in Detroit - see if you can score a slip at DYC through...

    Tell me all things Erie Canal/Hudson (northbound)

    how would you respond to this missive from your commodore?

    Races run this way make me not want to participate - even in a beer can, it's frustrating to not get flags/courses/horns/finishes correct. I think asking people to shape up is quite alright. I've done serious and beercan RC, and would not be offended to be called out if I was not on my game.

    Tell me all things Erie Canal/Hudson (northbound)

    I just bought my 3rd C&C 35-1 in NY and I need to get it back to Detroit. My justification for the $ is that I'm bored AF and the Erie Canal would be a bucket list item. Plus it's my old man's 80th B-day in May and he is stoked to do this together. The boat is in East Hampton NY and I can...
