Talking Boating In January on Lake Superior!

Talk about a cold ride I have been to this island in my boat when you could see your breath. But this goes a litte further. http://www.graniteisland.com/transportationp6.shtml

The way this weather is going lake Superior should be warm this summer. I have seen many years of 70deg water. I have a placce in Grand Marais, MI and the snow is OK there but no ice at all. Can you say Quadrunner?

Never been on that boat, but got to drive his Zodiac with a air cushion seat, got the boat up to 50 in 3-4'seas. I will suggest the power additon next time I see him he is always trying to go to the rock faster. It only takes 15min, but I think he wants 10min.
