  • Summer Cruise 2011

    Posted on September 13th, 2011 cwmoore No comments

    We started on our summer cruise late this year due to all kinds of commitments and the weather.  All that notwithstanding, we had a late launch this year and I needed a new rode for the intended cruising ground.  Our route this year was foreshortened due to expeced weather that actually materialized:  Saugatuck – Muskegon Lake (A) – Pentwater (A) – Manistee (S) – Frankfort (S) – Pentwater (A) – Saugatuck.  Of course the A means anchored and the S means slip.  We had approximately 50 hours on the engine Hobbs meter for total time of motoring this trip.  Just for the record the Hobbs Meter reads 1139.7 as of  9/13/11.  I will copy the trip log here from time to time until it is complete.  I will also add anecdotes as appropriate so check back for trip details.
