Question Finger Lakes - Labor Day 2003

Looking at at a trip to the area over Labor Day (and the following week) next summer. I will probably stay at the Ramada in Geneva for the first few days, as it is close to the Cayuga & Seneca canal. This way, we can cover two lakes at once. I'll have the 28' BatBoat, and Shane's thinking about brining his 24' Skater over as well.

Anyone have any advice on these lakes - launch ramps, transient slips, lakefront restaurants, etc? I haven't been there since 1981....

Anyone want to join in or meet up?

There is an event nearby that weekend that we will be attending and would like to cruise and enjoy the scenery.

No info on the lakes but it sounds like a interesting trip.
Keep me informed and maybe we'll throw in an Active Thunder.

The weekend of September 4-7 will be the Zippo Vintage Grand Prix weekend at the Watkins Glen track, featuring a tribute to the late Mark Donohue. (I was a great fan...) I figured, while we are up there, let's make a week of it!

good deal, there is plenty of scenery near watkins to hang on the boat
long lake to stretch the power out. Oneida lake is 45 minutes to an hour away as well. The erie canal is idle speed at best not too much fun, but with the right boat a good time and great site to see.
