The Casino at Kelleys Island is a must if you have an offshore.

also PIB, St. Hazzards on Middle Bass Island.

Myself along with a bunch of other members from this site are usually somewhere in that area on any given weekend so be sure to post again when you are comming.

My 382 sports a Garmin 2010C chartplotter, so I'll buy the necessary map sections to load into it. I'll go with the paper chart(s) as a backup as well. I really enjoy boating in new waters, but have learned to prepare for it well ahead of time. (Gotta love OSO for his kind of stuff!)

Maybe we can put together a "C_Spray Family Fun Run"!

You'll have a blast all over the "Islands Area" !!!! No need to head any further east than Vermilion however .... There's nothing doing in the Flats any more .... You'll have a hard time seeing all there is to see on all the islands anyway !!!!

I think that taking all necessary safety precautions is of paramount importance. I would HIGHLY reccommend that you bring ME along as first mate so the ADMIRAL can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

How are you my friend? Long time no talk. Have to catch up one of these days.

C Spray. what was your unkles name? i was Born and raised in Rossford. Funny thing is my boating passion started in the exact same place. my grandfather (mayor of Rossford for many years) had his Lyman on that same creek, theres really only one in Rossford that you could ever get a boat in. my parents still live there and i keep my boat in the Rosford marina. do you still have relatives in town? small world man

Dave: Art Thayer. If I remember correctly, his address was 447 Hillside Drive. Sound right? All my cousins and my aunt have all moved out of town now, but I'd love to make a run into Toledo, up the Maumee River, and see how far we can stick our nose up that creek. Lots of great memories and dreaming of what kind of boat I would buy "when I grew up". (Little did I imagine that I'd be on boat #5 at this point...)

You'll be fine with the upgrade charts for your Garmin.

I run that end of Lake Erie. Half (I swear) of the time I am looking at that GPS. If it had radar, I would never look out of the cockpit.

It's all about the depth. (Or lack thereof). I see 2s and 3s on my depth finder all the time. Thankfully mainly a mud bottom. (OK, I'll admit it, it's mud all the way to the surface)
Freaks you out, but you stay on that GPS course and you are fine. (this is the Toledo end) Around the Erie Islands things are better, but then you find rock, not mud.

Put me on the list of local guides when you come this way.

Me and GlassDave will give you a Stinger escort.

GlassDave - C-spray -

This is starting to get weird. I graduated from Rossford in '89. My now wife owned a house on Hannum (the road that leads down to the Rossford Marina).

I used to keep my boat at Rossford Marina. 25' Baja white w/ a Gray to Black checkered fade down the sides. I had Krischak out in Point Place do the Paint.

It's been four years since I had my boat there, and i've lived in 2 different states since then, ran the Allegheny river in Pittsburgh, and now I'm in Cincinnati/Ohio river.
I really miss that water up there. I too grew up on that water. Even that river (yes, let's be honest - it's a big mud puddle!) was a helluva lot of fun.

It used to be great they way they did the "party-in-the-park" on Fri. nights.
Looks like they screwed that up though - I was there this past spring for a graduation and went down there for dinner (by land), and now they charge to get in and that night it was only some type of spanish music. not like it used to be with "has-been" bands that at least had a few good songs.

Ah, the memories...

small world guys.

Tim

C spray, Hillside was directly on the other side of the creek from us. just go undernieth the Colony Rd. bridge and the river was just a few hundered yards. The name Art Thayer is familiar but i dont remember directly. the creek is un boatable now. its only a few feet deep and maybe twenty feet across. i have some great memories of that place.

bouyhunter- i graduated rossford in 84. my best friend lived on hanum about 3 houses from the manina. your not kidding about portside. that used to be the place to go. any more i usually hang out on the other side of the river. they have really done a great job on that project. it is actually starting to pick up on the portside side what with the new ballpark and all the new clubs and restrauants that went up around it. they still have some good parties in the park once in a while but not like it used to be. we do have some great boating here on the southwest end of the lake.

fund razor- i saw ya out on the lake last tuesday i think it was. i was helping a friends father get used to running his new cruiser. it has been a while since he has had a boat and he wanted some expieriance on board for the maiden voyage. looked like you were running along pretty good.

yep. . .small world guys . . .small world

OK - It's getting closer. Dates are August 6- 12, and I'll be bringing a 28' BatBoat instead of the Formula. I will transfer the chartplotter form the Formula to this boat to be safe.

The plan is to launch the boat Saturday afternoon the 6th near the western end of Sandusky Bay at a friends condo, and drive it over to Put-In Bay while the wife takes the Jeep over on the ferry. Other than that, the schedule's wide open (allowing, of course, for family reunion-type stuff). We're staying in some (basic) cottages on the northeast corner of the island, since most of my relatives don't want to spend big $$$. I can't wait.
