Default color of water !

I think the color of the water in St. Clair river was to me the best looking blue I have seen. Every time I race am always comparing the different body's of water with each other. I have raced St. Clair before back in 2000 but with 20 something F2's racing it was hard to notice. Jo

The Cuyahoga river was a nice shade or red/orange than they put it out. Now the Lake is just brown.

Roby was not able to get picture( 5 boats were chasing us). 71 I'v seen that color before but this was much darker almost royal blue. I'm sure that's why the boat association up there is called Blue Water ! Jo

The Great Lakes are really clean now. Between pollution control efforts and the zebra mussels they are swimming pool clear.

maybe 5-10 miles offshore but around cleveland and the islands I'd say that is one murky swimming pool.

I guess I was thinking more Lakes Michigan and Huron. You're downstream from the Detroit and Toledo treatment plants.

This isn't too bad, either: Eggmont Key off St. Pete, about 20 feet deep.
