I think I know which boat you're talking about. If it is available when I am more seriously shopping I will check it out, or find something similar.

I don't think insurance would be too reasonable
Also, it looks like I'll be up at Lake Erie now which sounds rough too.

Now that is a good idea. I guess I will need to make some friends that are older and have nice boats, as my current friends are a ways away from affording much.

Even 28 or 32 would be uncomfortable? How about Lake St Claire? I guess I can see for myself when I move to Dearborn in a few weeks.
