I am originally from Grand Rapids MI. I towed my 21ft Trick Cat up there last summer, and ran Lake Macatawa in Holland, and the Grand River out of Grand Haven. Both OK, but be warned that any inland water way in MI has a 55MPH speedlimit. I found out the hard way. Big lake was to rough during the time that i was there, but I used to boat in an 18ft donzi. Just have to play with the weather. The Chain of Lakes would be an awesome run for you to look into if you have time. There are LOTS of lakes and places to boat. I hope to tow the Trick back up there this summer again sometime, and hopefully the big lake will be a little more forgiving, it can be! Good luck! What size is your Daytona?
Poor side of Mac still ain't all bad!!! If your on the lake its ALL GREAT!! I will have to bump you if I get up there again this summer. Had 2 ft chopo on Mac while I was there last summer, had to keep it 'bout 80-85........
I have been on Lake Mi. in a 28ft daytona with twins and had a blast. The waves were HUGE rollers spaced really wide, we would launch off one and throttle up the next maybe hitting 40mph. If the spacing is wrong or short it is a little scary in a smaller cat. Some days there is barely 1ft chop out there. I ran in a poke run with my 28ft profile cat with no problems and it was pretty tore up out there. Anyway, you should be able to run out there if you have a 28.
