A lady friend of mine said the finger lakes in NY are excellent for boating...just passing it along.
Bill, my friend Melanie spoke of that one lake that's 40 miles long and a few miles wide...she was born raised in that region and stated it is quite beautiful and perfect for our types of boats etc >she saw some of our vids. She did mention if a windy day came along small white caps could be a factor but nothing serious. And as you mention, lots of places for lodging, eats and hanky panky (for MikeT and Soaker) sphssThe Finger Lakes region is beautiful. I'm only familiar with Cayuga Lake. It's 40 miles long, and 3 miles long. There aren't a whole lot of coves, but there are plenty of public beaches and landings you can get out and stretch. There are also plenty of restaurants in the water with public docks. I know of one winery with a cafe and beach access. The south end of the lake is Ithaca, and it's a college town, with the river portion being boatable and restaurants/bars. You can have lunch on the patio looking at your boat. I've been there for a couple of summers in July, and have never seen it crowded, nor big waves or wakes. Pretty peaceful actually. Dan goes there too.
I will second that Jim. I have NEVER seen nicer water and scenery, tons of bays and islands (about a 1000) You can see the bottom in water that is 30ft deep.devil Might even be the odd Canadian beaver. lolHammer,
the lake she is talking about I believe would be Seneca Lake.
Keep this in mind you guy's......
The Thousand Islands blows the Finger Lakes away as far as beauty and things to do and see big time.
71Hallett and I are in talks about a get together next summer on the Canadian side.
Heck, you could check out the Finger Lakes first and head north to the Thousand Islands.
There's just one thing I have to warn you about......Once you go there, you wont want to be boating anywhere else!!!!
I will be posting up a bunch of Thousand Island pics from last summer in a week or so.
Would you care to explain yourself please.RealityGuys just be aware that if you go to Canada
guard every thing like you were in the middle
of a thieves convention because you are!!!!violent
Any thing you have that they think is valuable
will be gone, like right now!!!
No, I snowmobile about 3-4000 miles per winter and no problems. You may have had a bad experience so I guess it makes all Canadians as a county pirates and thieves. Glad I am on your personal list. I will remember this next time one of you guys needs something. Since every one of you is personally responsible for your country.Every one who snomobiles in Canada has
seen first hand how many vehicles, tools
and belongings disapear and never are found.
Most times it seems like the cops are involved
or on the payroll.If it is not the cops then the
hotel staff or managment.
Does that explain?
