When I selected the 30 best anchorages I did so with lower water levels in mind. I don't thin that a six foot draft would have a problem in any of the 30. The marinas will be a different story.

I'm glad you enjoyed Jim's webinar, Robert.

I don't know that Jim will see your question in this comment, as this thread is not associated with his webinar. I'd recommend you instead email your question to him at the address given in the recording email for follow-up webinar recording questions. Alternately you could send your question to his address as found in the GLCC directory on this site.

Thanks again for your interest and support of GLCCSchool. We'll be looking forward to seeing you in other classes.

Bill Rohde, GLCCSchool Coordinator

We finally were able to listen to the recording of the webinar last evening. Many thanks, Jim, for a great job and more than enough new ideas for our summer cruise. The pictures brought back lots of good memories and whetted our appetites.

You mentioned your draft being 4'3' and that being fine for most of these anchorages. Ours is a hefty 5'10". Any of these anchorages we need to avoid?

Then too, after the webinar, we turned to the Muskegon Chronicle and are wondering if we're even going to be able to get our boat out of anchorage in eastern White Lake. The level is down 19 inches from this time last year--now dubbed all time low for lakes Huron and Michigan-- and still dropping. We were sitting on the bottom at our slip in early October.

Anyone else along the east coast of Lake Michigan got any insights?
