We're probably taking the kids PIB the weekend before, but thinking about a Thursday-Sunday run someplace so we can be back for the Sunday-Monday parties. Grand Bend? Lexington? any other ideas?

Probably heading up to Port Huron, Lexington, maybe across the lake to Goederich & Grand Bend, Canada. The weekend before we are going to PIB, Kelly's Island and Cedar Point, that's always a blast and a half

Would anyone, besides Zman & Pandora who are already going to be on Lake Erie for the week prior, like to join us?

How 'bout a trip to Grand Bend?

Unfortunately, one of my good friends decided to get married in Las Vegas over Labor Day weekend. <_< Tried to convince her to switch dates but she already put down a deposit at Ceasar's Hotel. The good thing is that my girlfriends and I are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel. What a cool place.
On Sundays they have a Rehab party (for those who need to rehabilitate themselve after partying all saturday night). It's about as close as you can get to being out in the Moot on a weekend.
Hey Dave, you need to bring the raft to the Hard Rock's pool, I'm sure you will have no problem filling it up with hot chicks with butt floss bikinis!


So whatever you all do, have a great time.

How long is the ride up to Grand Bend from lets say... Harsens Island?

I like Grand Bend but I've only stayed there on land (Hotels and the Pinery). I want to take a trip by boat but right now I'm in a 22 ft cuddy cabin that won't accomodate a weekend trip, in my oppinion. I'm looking to upgrade in the next year or two, what size boat do you guys think is comfortable for weekend trips like that with one or two couples on board? 26-28 ft cruiser?

If we average say 30mph, and the weather cooperates, about 3 hours.

As for the size of the boat, I guess that all depends on your tolerance levels. I've got a 41' & my first mate says its claustrophobic!

What are you thinking???

We are cruising at 40-42, right?

Steve, you and Robyn can look at buying our Moose Boat!

Thanks foor the response Instigator and Moose, i wouldn't attempt that trip in my 22' either. I've boated all my life, granted I'm only 23, but my experience is limited to Lake St Clair only. I look forward to venturing out into Huron, Erie, and beyond once I've got a boat big enough t o take me there safely.

Moose, you are right about weather blowing up. The worst storm I've been in was last year's 4th of July. I don't know if any of the rest of you happened to be in Muskamoot when that happened but i was very thankfull to be rafted up with the rest of boats around the z-man.
