Can't wait to get back up there on Memorial day weekend.

tg.
The old sneekins bar in Eastport?
looked at that, I am looking into buying the old Eastport township hall and EMT building across the street, icecream, candy store, bakery, coffee shop,and yes maybe a bar with local entertainment in the evenings,( simular to the old brownwood) with a boat repair and restore shop in the old EMT building.
What did Ms. Carleton teach?
I graduated in 82

Nope, sorry I have never seen that building.
Where is it located? or was located?

Yes - unfortunately.

In the 60's it was called Fetz's Lodge - The Dockside was an IGA store, and the rental unit next door was a Pancake House.

After coming back to the area after many years, I was sad to see the parking lot - the staff over at Butch's told me about the fire. Too bad. Overall, though - the area is pretty much like it was back then - we used to stay at the Northaire Resort over on Clam Lake.

The people up there are pretty nice too----but of course there is always an exception to the rule. A perfect example of this, is this local guy I ran into up there that goes by the name of "Rick"---owns a auto repair shop somewhere and hangs out with Michael Moore at Torch Lake---he seems to think he owns that too!

A couple of boats that size trying to launch at Torch could be an issue. I have a horror story about launching my boat into Torch last year the day after Boyne Thunder. Great Lake once you're out there, but what a B#@tch getting there.

I heard Luhr's Landing on the Torch River is adequate enough for 40+ footers....I think someone said a 40' Skater launched there last year. I have never launched there myself, but I know some of the locals up there who know those waters well and they said Luhr's Landing can handle some of the bigger boats.

I usually launch in Elk Lake in downtown Elk Rapids---not sure I can do that anymore with the new hog I have now.
