the only thing boat related in coldwater is a Hilabrands salvage place.. they have old junk boats.. lots of outboards and two big mean doberman's with there names shaved in the side of them

go to the west side of michigan, you will love it.. I have only been there once and it was unbeleivable, the scenery is gorgeous...

There are a couple of lakes in Coldwater. And I know some guys put some pretty big boats in them (I believe they are connected by a river or canal). But nothing as big as a 32 Sunsation.

Come on over to the West side. We'll show you around!!!!! Awsome dunes, beautiful towns and ports, and some of the best boating I have ever done.

All the lakes around Coldwater are pretty small.There are a lot of fast jets,vdrives,outboards etc.. but you would be wasting your time with that size boat in that country.

If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

Holy Smokes!!!!! I just stayed on Coldwater Lake last night!! 7 lakes connected by channels. Coldwater LAke is the biggest. Not sure what kind of boating you want, but a 32 is enormous for that lake. There is plenty of room to lay into the throttle, but it is an inland lake and you get to the other side rather quickly. Nice sand bar, resturant and marina. Not sure what the local law thinks about offshore boats on their lake, but I have had my 24 OUtlaw up there and it will visit again this year in order to calm down the natives who think that 65 mph in a small block Caravelle is high speed ( I know, I know..... I used to be one of those guys as well ).

If you go, put in at Coldwater LAke Marina, deepest ramp. Doubt you will get afloat on the public ramps. 30 ft. Wellcraft is the biggest I have seen, other than that the biggest boats are usually mid 20's.

Travis, you are right about Hildebrands, he has all sorts of crap laying around, especially old sleds. It's like a freakin' graveyard!!
