Default Chicago Locals COPS Gang ?

I plan on bringing my boat over from Michigan on June 12 and staying until the 16th, I have a convention I need to go to.

What Marina can I leave the boat at thats not going to cost a mint? I have a room at Intercontinental Hotel downtown so I will need little access to it durning my stay but want it to be safe.

________________________________________

side note....

Are you allowed to bring a boat into the river downtown? I don't recall ever seeing any.

Thanks

Diversey Harbour is probably the best bet, and is where most of the action is.

Yes, you can go up and down the river.

Hope to go next week or week after, I am waiting on STS to give me my boat back, Stinson is making changes every week. Talked him today, he sent the powder coat pieces back to be redone and has a few touch up items.

His upholsterer went NUTS and redid everything, looks great couldn't be happier.

I need to get it back soon I am running out money.

I built a spread sheet based on estimated fuel usage

Should be fun, I will take my PC and post details as I go.

Oh yea, I did go and get a wetsuit just in case I had to get in the water... At 40 degree water temp you dont have alot of time to wait for the Coast Guard, that was Jen's condition on me going.
