Two years ago we went there from Boyne City in our 230 PQ. It was kind wash machine like, a lot of boats and wake. Didn't really see much rafting. There was alot of single anchors. Smoothed out after the show was underway.

Great show!! You could see the pilot's names on their helmets. They were maybe 150' above us. Seemed like it.

We'll be there again this year.

We raft in the west bay not far from Clinch Marina. Last few years we have had 7-10 boats together. Close enough so the sterns R 3-31/2 feet deep so we can jump in in front of the beach. Usually still shrinkage factor temp, but hey, U only live 1nc! We have a blast, sign up!!! Wrink

Went 2 years ago...got the crappola beat outta me on the way home, or at least for the first 15 miles or so! Boats EVERYWHERE! Not sure i'll make the run this year. You guys left me waitin for JB in char-town and we were late gettin there so we ended up rafting with a few others in about 150ft of water. NOT an easy task when you only have 100ft of anchor line! LOL
