Parn (Nauty Kitty) and Curt (Primal instinct) still have a few weeks to get there boats done

Major projects going on with both boats

Steve (Blue Moon ) Is a good bet

What about you Todd?

Going to be a warm weekend

actually Parn will be sooner than Curt I think

Parn could be real soon if he and his side kick (My Son ) finish their upgrades I know they are all working hard on the weekends to get things buttoned up

I was in the barn last night going thru the boat. I wont try it until after spring break. Water levels should be good with all the snow and rain.

Wont be me, painting the Lib on April 20th.

On a side note, on my way home from work in holland yesterday, I went by the Grand River where the River Queen sits in the summer. Some guy was running his Wave Runner full bore down the river in what looked like just shorts. :lol:

Not lake Michigan, but there was someone on lake st clair on March 13th. He posted pictures of himself on an ice floe drinking beer, with the boat anchored to the ice.

There was another guy out on his stand-up jet ski (in a drysuit) dodging ice floes on March 16.

Depends on where you boat in MI.

Lave levels vs. last year as of today:

Superior -18"

Michigan -1"

St.Clair +6"

Huron +7"

We have run Lake Mich in April before. Bring your snowmobile suits. You will be able to see your breath when your on the water.

Can you swim in Lake Michigan? Does the water ever warm up? How warm?
