I have finally finished my Sail-Log narrative of our 6-day cruise in northern Lake Michigan last summer, now available almost one year after the end of the cruise.

This narrative is shorter than my previous epics, so you won't have to spend half the night reading it. That may be in its favor.

There is an excellent map that shows our courselines, some wonderful photographs of our various Boston Whalers in beautiful blue Lake Michigan water, reports on accommodations at four marina facilities, and particulars on five different restaurants at which we had the pleasure to eat.

If anyone has a question or a comment on the trip, I would be glad to answer it in a follow up posting.

Great narrative on the July trip! I'm amazed at your ability to recall the slightest details, even after a year. Thanks for the memories!

I had a sailboat at Irish Boat Shop, Charlevoix from the mid 70ís to late 80ís. The area was far less developed and I feel more charming back then. The condo marina just north of the Irish Ferry Street dock was an abandoned factory in an open field. They had built landing craft in WWII. One of the guys at the marina was a member of the Great Lakes Cruising Club. His friends would always stay at the marina as they came through the area; some really magnificent old wooden schooners, cutters, etc. Every thing was Bristol on these boats.

During holidays, the boats would gather in Round Lake for fireworks. We would usually anchor over night, and I remember waking one morning to find part of rocket casings in the cockpit.

I see Beaver Island is in a time warp as my memories of sailing there pretty much match your narrative. I was kicked out of the Municipal Marina once for pulling in with my dinghy.

We dropped the Montauk in at the ramp next to Irish one-day last year. Ran up to Horton Bay, then on to the State Park and Boyne City. Like the narrative of your trip, it was good memories.
