My motor needed a new fuel pump, fuel connector and carb rebuilt. $503 -ouch!
In the good ole days I probably would have done it myself.

What a great time. Janet and I really enjoyed the Rendezvous at Hessel, and the weather gods granted us some great breezes and the occasional excitement. Thank you very much Mark and Lauren for putting this together. Yet another great sailing venue that we'd never have experienced if it wasn't for the annual Rendezvous.

We broke our return journey into two days, this time rolling down hwy 23 which runs along Lake Huron. We enjoyed the pool and the non-moving bed of a Comfort Inn in Bay City. On Tuesday morning we enjoyed our shopping spree at a meijer's (where I scored some board shorts to rival Dave Simpson's ;\) ) then drove the rest of the way home. Thank you Dave V for hooking us up with meijer's.

Lake-Effect got back to her slip at LSYC today. I will try to get our pictures up over the weekend. A reminder to please gather up your best shots with the meijers banner or flags.

Yes Rebekah and I both enjoyed ourselves greatly. The sailing plan was good to circle round the main islands with an extended part, and when returning home one could take the inside or outside route.

Thank You to all who helped out (Mark ,lauren, Ken and Dave, and our sponsor Meijer).

The weather behaved well, with lots of sunshine with the winds helped us along on both days, unlike last year's gale.

We left about 11:00 and stopped in at St Ignace for a few hours and when going home on the I-75 North we spotted and waved at "Erige" Steve and Lauren new Sandpiper. They performed an Official Boat Name changing ceremony at raft up, wow, it was detailed, and if you want to know how to do it, then just ask them.
