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.
I run the lake all the time. Let me know if you need anything.

C spray - What did you do, buy a 28' Batboat? Or is Chris renting those?
I was at Chris' shop a few times about 2 years ago, and he had one of the 28' pleasure versions there - I don't recall if he was also building a 28' race version. Helluva nice guy.

Bouyhunter - I bought my 28 from Volvo Penta in 1997. It's a true Swedish Mannerfelt, laid up and vacuum bagged with epoxy and Kevlar. Unfortunately, I've got it so far apart for some cleanup and re-rigging that it looks like I won't have it done, so we're back to the idea of bringing the 382. Looks like I have some decent deals on transport lined up, but it still will be considerably more than it would be to tow the Batboat myself.

So - who's going to be around that week???

SOX - is that your's or C-spray's.
Nice boat - very cool.
How wide is that thing from wing tip to wing tip??
Any problem when trailering (due to width?) (or "lift" for that matter)

1) Yep. It's mine. Sox just goes along as occasional screaming ballast.
2) Thanks
3) 10' 2"
4) Yep. Scraped the port wing on several tollbooths over the years. No problem with lift. Or drag - tows easier that a 21' bowrider.

Anyway - Who's going to be around between the 6th and the 13th? We're planning at least one trip into Toledo and down to Rossford, and an around-islands tour or two.

Im only a mooch but Im around if someone lets me ride with them. Tony (Thrillseeker) and Greg (Teambaja) are at the islands almost every weekend. They are fun company if you like to drink and sit and tell stories.

BTW, the boat looks cool.
