4:50 pm: Dock my boat @ Jack's for CK's Bash
5:05pm: Labatt Blue Light in hand

7:00pm: Depart Jack's (Detroit bound)

So far It's JabberJaws', LabDog, Duece-Five, and myself taking our boats down.

Who else wants to join us in the trip down. Trust me, it's a great time.

All I can tell you is that last year was not bad at all. It was very calm. I think because we were in that spot I previously posted. The south west corner of Belle Isle.

We are coming down from HCN, leaving around 6/6:15pm and plan on anchoring around the same area. We might go a little further out towards the light, but still in the shallows. We'll keep here on channel 69 and see who we all can hook up with.

I would not raft for the fireworks......it can get extremely rough.....Ditto to what Wiz the Wise One said!

Make sure you have the proper amount of anchor line out, too.

Those who don't make it.......your missin' out!

Love you all, but you don't know until you try.


I will take pics of the calm water, and how much of a great time it will be, and next year we will have all kinds of peeps go with us.
I will make believers out of all of you!

I've done it many times over the years.......it's usually not rough until everybody just about runs everybody else over trying to get out of there (what's the hurry? it's the 4th!!!)

The smallest I've been down there in (for the fireworks), is a 16 ft. boat a '57 Chris Craft.....no matter the size, it is a great time.

Hope all that are going have a good time......never know I could end up going at last minute, but doubt it.

I'm in for the raft at the St. Clair Shores Fireworks Friday Night and the Belle Mar Fireworks on the 4th... You can get close enough for those, that the effect is even better than the Detroit Fireworks! Then you just hang out till the chaos clears and you motor home in calm seas, Knowing there's no work in the morning...

Wiz, Sounds like a plan. We will have to have a gigantic raft for those. Will be awesome!
Let's make it happen.
The 4th of July weekend is gonna be the best thing happening this summer.

if one can try it once, then once is good!
