Last week I posted a question about making a trip from Put-in-Bay, Ohio to Sarnia, Ontario and got a ton of extremely helpful responses from the board. The good news is that I made the trip last week and other than running into some pretty thick fog in the middle of Lake St Clair coming home, the journey was without drama and we had a blast.
I must say, however, that the time estimates I received were wildly off as we made the upbound portion of the trip in 5 hours going against the current and it only took us 3.5 hours to get home running with the current traveling at a pretty steady 26-28 MPH. That was a pleasant surprise.
I will definitely make this trip again someday. Here are a few pics from the voyage.
