    O.K. Toronto but that's in the much mellower NW corner of the Lake.
    Actually Rochester Offshore runs one in June out of Oswego and yes it can get rough. Last year was the first year in the 15 years we've been doing runs that we had to cancel a run. The waves went from 8' at 9AM to over 12' by noon. But to be fair, we've usually seen pretty good conditions during our runs. We also do a fun run out of Sodas Bay in August that has been awesome for the last several years.
    Rippem is absolutely right, for those who haven't seen big rollers on the lakes try eastern lake ontario. When it gets that big, the troughs are where I like to be, or riding down the crests 12' above the bottom of the wave. Man this can lake rock.
    Rippem, from your discription of the water it sounds like you run out of Henderson or Sackets Harbor alot. Very nice when its nice, very nasty when its bad. Grew up there, it sorts out the dock queens from the real boaters real fast.
