Re: Haul-Out Timing In the Great Lakes

I have shoveled 6 inches of snow off my boat in mid October to go diving. This is up in Lake Superior country.

I normally pull the sailboat early October and the dive boat the first week in November.

Re: Haul-Out Timing In the Great Lakes

How cold is the water when you are diving in late October?

Depends on depth but early September has the warmest water of the summer. I would estimate surface water temps in late October to be between 48 and 56 F depending on the year.

Re: Haul-Out Timing In the Great Lakes

So, even with a wetsuit, you are looking at a cold shock as you go in, eh? However, I guess that is the price to pay to get the pictures you posted of the wrecks.

Unhappy Re: Haul-Out Timing In the Great Lakes

In southern Lake Michigan, our marina starts hauling Oct 1 and completes by the 31st. We'll probably haul ours by the middle of October, since the lake can be pretty cranky by then.
