I do poker runs for the same reason. Some of the bars at LOTO have as many as 2-3000 people on any given weekend. I have boated at many lakes and the ocean and I prefer LOTO to any place in the country.

Thanks Mark, This is what I was looking for.
I was wondering what people liked most about the area they boated in. That is what makes this Country so great, we have choices, and everybody likes different things but if somebody likes something different than you, that doesn't make them a bad person. Just think, if we all liked the same thing we would all be at the same lake, the boats would all look the same and the girls would all be NUDE. Wait...I hope we all like that one
I like the northern Great Lakes myself but would love to see LOTO and party cove on the 4th of July, from someone else's boat though.
So people tell me what draws YOU to your area. Thanks, JB

I'd love to do that one myself, and just think, Miami to Bahamas is only half the distance that it is across Lake Michigan.

Good answer Steve

My answer was going to be:
Who built LOTO

What about the Glaciers that dragged massive amounts of sand from up north, then deposited it in a spot that is now Long Island.......Those Glaciers left us with the Long Island Sound which is some great boating water and also accounts for a very large portion of my buisness. Thanks God.....job well done...

Wherever I am at the time is the best boating for me.
From the Keys to the St. Lawrence and anywhere in between.

jb,
when you find a place to boat that is better than the northern great lakes let me know. charlevoix, grand and little traverse, green bay, door county, s. fox, beaver, escanaba, mackinaw, the soo, north channel, georgean bay, the list goes on and on. the season is just too darn short.
everytime i head elsewhere i have a blast but always come back and think there is no place like home. grand haven, chicago, detroit, saginaw, sheboygan, sausage tuck, loto, cumberlain, cleveland, cedar point(very cool for the kids) they just dont compare to the water and sites that we have here. you have to head back to loto for memorial or labor day (for you loto people iam the 4th of july is much crazyier but its not worth leaving our home for) to witness the mass of humanity. we may head back to loto this memorial day will let you know, we have found memories of party cove. he turns four in a few weeks
