I came across this...

RECREATIONAL FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
351 AM EDT WED MAY 13 2009

.THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN OPEN WATERS FORECAST...

.TODAY...SOUTH WINDS AROUND 10 KNOTS. WAVES LESS THAN 1 FOOT.

But, if this is incorrect and the wind was 25MPH out of the South I couldn't be happier because we ran my 13' jet boat WOT, 60MPH GPS the whole way to VT from Peru launch and back to the Turtle! Thing of mine is better in the rough than I thought! Thanks Tom!

Neil the ride to the turtle was flat mid day.We were out till around 5pm and the lake had picked up a lot.The crap we're getting today was moving in.Let me know if you can make it to the Turtle Friday for a spin.

Jim I will call you when we get out there!

Tom thanks so much for the offer but I have a packed day tomorrow. I definately would love to take a spin and get some pictures of your rig. We'll be in touch!

Here's a picture I took between five and six last night... Not sure where you were boating?
