question for champlain guys... I have not been on the lake yet this year. not this monday but next one I'm planning to go to the beach with the kids. If I plan according to what I saw on the st-laurence last week, there ai'nt no beach left because the water is so high!!!!

So, question is, are there any beaches left on the lake or they are all flooded?

Jeff, your fine down here. All the beaches south of the border are no problem........Threadwell, Cumberland Bay, Thayers (although you can't get close to the beach now), North Beach outside Burlington...etc, etc

Actually hit the lake this evening. Met up with Robin and Lyn (had dinner at the Champlain Marina). Also met up with Robin and Shannon (little father/daughter quality time...nice)! Didn't quite miss the rain coming back but had a great recovery at the launch thanks to my first mate Patti!! We'll be out tomorrow, doesn't look too bad!

Thayers may be roped off but I ended up at North beach on monday and had a great time. Still plenty of area to drop anchor close to shore.

never made it over to thayers Whats the point now really!
sunday looked iffy so I didnt put in had family obligations and went out to the burlington brawl Cage fight that was a good show.

Thayers will open again soon.We had a meeting with the town and made our point.The area should be back open to boats soon.No anchors on the beach and no trash dropped at cans,also no dogs.We were all aware of most of these rules before,just a few out of towners did'nt obey.

The wife ,kids and I had a great 2 weeks on the lake. It was nice to see everyone again. You have a great looking boat Tom and if your friend is interested i am willing to let mine go for 80g. I really don"t have much use for here down here. Also GLH's rig isn"t to bad as well..Although I think Klees boat is a little more practical...
