Thumbs up Plee Island and Leamington Ontario this weekend

Heading up from Cols Oh. either Thurs night or Fri a.m.
Heading for Pelee Island for Friday night and then run to Leamington Saturady a.m. for the Blackbeard Rendevous/Party Sat night.
Staying through till Monday but probably head South some time Sunday and maybe burn down Kellies Island Sunday night.
Let me know if anyone is going to be out and about???
Doing a wreck dive off Pt. Pelee Sat a.m. if all go's well but no real plans other than that.
Gary
P.S. Have been over a couple times so far and so have my friends. I and they all say, take your pass port or your "original" birth certificate and you should be fine in/out of Canada.

Thumbs up Big Daddy/ThrillSeeker

Just spent a 1/2 hr looking at weather reports and it looks pretty border line.
3' to 5's Saturday and Sunday!
Big Daddy, the only way we'll be in that area is if it it's to bad to head North.
If so, we'll head to Huron and try and a get a dock where we are withing staggering distance to "J.P.'s Down Under".
If we do that we could hit Vermilion. Had a hiuse there 2 years ago and have'nt been back by boat since.
ThrillSeeker, What is your boat so I'll recognise you??
Our plan is to be at Leamington but headed South on Sunday.
We are taking Monday off so we may get a dock at Middle Bass for Sunday night. Maybe take the ferry to PIB and come back and burn down "J.F.Walleys".
Also another way cool pub about 1/2 mile North of there that is part of a "Carribian (sp?) style Resort". Probably be dead on a Sunday but still better than working!
If the weather is descent you may very well see us in the west Bay area and maybe the Inn
3- 5's hummmmh?? Forecast is for them to be going North Friday and Saturday and South on Sunday and Monday.
Might be fun
Gary
P.S. Here is my boat so you'll recognize me if you see me.

Thumbs up Tony

Kewl!!!
Looking at radar, it aint looking good!
I just bolted on four blades to run in the slop.
Love to see your boat, what year is it??
I doubt your boat even throws spray in 5 footers!!
That my friend is a "real" offshore boat!!
Remember meeting a guy at Kellies Island several years ago.
Had an older 35' that he had totally re-done. We were talking about the difference between a boat like his (and yours) and all the newer fly weight, stepped bottom "lake" boats.
He says he gives up about 10 MPH in smooth water (which it was'nt designed for) but eats em for lunch in the rough
Looked at a couple of twin O/B 28's in Fla.
I'll make you a deal, if it's smooth, I'll wait on you.
If it's rough, wait on me!!!

Been watching the weather channel on TV for radar shots.
For destination fore cast's I usually use lakevision.com, you can get pictures of actual conditions and buoy fore casts from here.

Default Hi Gary

Hope you get the weather you want for the weekend. I'm doing the motorcycle thing. Still want to hook up and do Canada with you some time.

How was the Rumble?
They have really been hitting the boats hard around the islands this year. Here is a clip from the Cleveland Plain dealer yesterday.

MARBLEHEAD

2 boats seized

Two boats were seized, one for a weapons violation, during a four-day law enforcement crackdown last weekend around the Lake Erie islands and Sandusky Bay. Twelve boaters were arrested for boating under the influence, and 14 narcotics cases were opened. U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Adam Carron said two southern Ohio men returning from Canada were arrested and their 28-foot boat seized when concealed handguns and knives were found during a safety inspection at Middle Bass Island State Park. A 23-foot boat was confiscated after the operator was arrested on a charge of cocaine possession. This was the second blitz conducted by Northern Fence, an operation of the Coast Guard; Sandusky, Put-in-Bay and Bay View police; and various Ottawa County, state and federal agencies.


Have fun,
Cordell

You find "illegal" fire arms or coke on my boat, throw me in jail too!!
Been watching/listening to weather all day, still calling for 3' to 5's.
