    A few people over night on the sand bar at torch still.

    When I was at grand haven with my old boat I trailered it at the ramp and slept in it in the parking lot.

    Night running is fun until you come across a boat with their lights off...

    There used to be some fishermen that would fish the water outlet of the Port Sheldon power plant at about 2am in little fishing boats with no lights....I scared the crap outta them a couple times. By the time I saw them I'd already be passing them so I'd never really freak out....but you know they had heard me and been watching my nav light bouncing towards them for a while...lol. I can imagine them trying to figure out which way to move to avoid me flattening them...forward or back? Like a scene from an old silent movie....lol.

    I have a lot of family in Milwaukee and Chicago so crossings will be an option this time around. My last boat was a single so I never braved it.
    You can stay on the wall as long as you want. There was a houseboat, I think the guy lived there. Ya, the beach across from the the wall, pretty sure it's still up for grabs. Campfire might be pushing it tho.
    No, we still beach it in Port Sheldon. There is a boardwalk there but its back far enough.

    Thanks Knuth..A friend of mine has a big RV on one of the campgrounds...I'll have to look into which one. I've seen some pics of a lot of boats rafted up during Hot Boat...is there somewhere in particular everyone usually groups up? What's it like up there the rest of the season?

    Most of the action is usually at consumers beach. thats where hotboat is. Or the sandbar is another good spot. You just to be carefull when you get up stream of davis bridge. Just remember when running the river stay towards the high side, cause low banks mean shallow water.
