On the wall above our computer there is a picture of the Carl D. Bradley. Do a google search on it and then come back with all this BS about going out in this weather.

The Bradley sunk in 1959 in northern Lake Michigan in similar fashion as the Fitzgerald but had one or two survivors. Almost all the crew was from Rodgers City a small town in northern Michigan.

Gordon Lightfoot didn't write a song about this one.

Guys----Lets keep this fun !!!!! Nobody should be out in these waves. My point in the post is how rough our little lake can get. There are people that live near oceans and think they are the only ones with big waves.

Last Saturday when Lake Michigan kicked up 15' waves six kayakers went out on the Lake in New Buffalo and 5 were rescued by the Coast Guard and the 6th one drown, I am sure they thought they were going to have fun in the Apache and Cigarette weather.
