Jeeze Nort it was real dry that day back from the island and Newport wasn't it...... They just will never know We get it all out in the ocean, spaced out rollers, nasty snot that you can not even run in, and flat calm. Its all good.

Well lets see, last week we had 16 footers on Lake Michigan that were so closely spaced that even the coasties said it was not navigable. Shipping came to a halt (by the way, there are more boats and ships on the bottom of the great lakes than all the 7 seas combined) for more than 24 hours.

This week, the waves are about 8-10 foot. Feel free to come on up with that little boat of yours (any of you) and we'll see who cries uncle!!!

The great lakes are rough, thats for sure but I bet it is rougher trying to go between those pilings that oil rig is on in those waves. How big do you think those were Nort.
