We're gonna try! Totally snafu'ed with our never-ending open-house sessions but, weather permitting, we'll attempt our first lake crossing on the Friday, for an overnighter and then a return on Saturday evening. Too unpredictable to pre-book a berth, so will hope for the guest dock if on a wing, and a prayer. Any such thing as stern-end rafting?
John, I'll bring some Stony Creek blend for you to sample. Quebec1, maybe I'll run into a bale on the way across, and boat-hook it!

John, I've pm'd my number to you just now. Let me know if that worked. I'm waiting for some feedback from the marina, as to berth or guest dock availabilities because I can't pin down the weather window with any exactitude yet. Somehow.....
I say, anyone that arrives boatless has to put up the first 'shout'!

The weather looks perfect for next week - so far! :)

We'll probably get there by thursday, at the latest. I've e-mailed the marina for information about berth or guest availability, but have had no reply as of yet. Was going to hold off for a phone call to them, till tuesday.
Beene, do you mean to say if we came a little early we could scoop up one of these? I'm still ok with some other spot otherwise. Might help in getting a little sleep at night, away from all the rowdy's.
:D

I had hoped to make this one but have burned three weeks vacation this summer on Cape Cod....my employer might take a dim view of me overdrawing my Vacation time....

HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE!!

I can't wait for the weekend:-) We're totally in!
I did try and email the marina a couple of times but received no response. I guess I should probably call and book ASAP.

If anyone is coming early and in the Toronto Harbour area, hit me up....! We are docked at Toronto Island Marina, and we're usually out sailing (almost everyday!) around 2pm....after that you can find us anchored at Hanlans....

Cheers!
