Both are on the North Channell towards Algonac. If you come off of the Lake by Anchor Bay Balfors is in the no wake zone on the left right by Deckers, which also has good gas prices. Sassy's is up further towards Algonac on the left. You can't miss it ,it has two giant hockey sticks out front. Thats the Marina where we keep our boat.
I was asking at Sassy's today about getting gas and it felt like they didn't have the pumps working yet. I hope the do by next weekend as I came in with about 1/8 of a tank and will never make it home. I also second the Balfour / Sassy gas prices. I summer on the Clinton River and NEVER gas up there. Besides being cheaper - it's a GREAT reason to make a run. The run is more than paid for with the coin you save (at 225 gallons / fill!)!
I used Mac and Ray gas 99% of time last summer and never had probs.
I know its 87 octane.
I may have to look in my manual again, but I am fairly certain my engine is designed for 87 octane. is 89 better in a boat?
I know that for cars, most are designed for 87, and anything above doesn't do much.
