Re: Hello all from England

We would like to do the great lakes also. Do you, or will you have a blog? Last summer we spent some time up in michigan, I was totally blown away by the beauty, I had always been an ocean girl ( no pun intended :-) ). I had no idea there were sandy beaches and emerald green waters. There is something magical about Lake Superior

Bruce Roberts, one of our dream boats, good choice.

Welcome aboard, happy adventures

Re: Hello all from England

He he, yes I should of mentioned there was NO way this tropical girl was gettin in that water, but the idea of zero predators holds such fascination with me. I'm used to keepin a sharp eye out for either alligators, sharks,barracudas etc.

Re: Hello All from England

G'day, mate. Welcome aboard from down under. We learned to sail, way back when, on the Great Lakes. Where you launching at? Cheers
