Lets hope it lays down a bit before morning. Although Waterlogg is the captian and makes the final call. After the ride home from PIB across Erie for X-mass in July. 3 footers on St Clair doesn't even scare me. A 30ft boat can handle that no problem. Look at it this way....they might not run out of docks by 2 in the afternoon this way.

I hope its a little better tomorrow, I really want to go by boat so we have a place to crash. We were going to go out tonight, but i'm thinking not.

The thing that would keep us from going by boat is if they were calling for rain all day, so for now we're still planning to boat over.
