    About 10 years ago friends of mine from CP bought a boat that was being stored at BMH. It wasn´t THIS early, but it was very early in the season. BMH and MacRay had only a handful of boats in. Regardless, BMH charged them regular-season daily transient rates while they commissioned their new-to-them boat. They were also rude about it. We called MacRay and explained the situation. The Member Services Mgr at the time allowed them to borrow an empty well near us. They became part of the MacRay social circle. A decade later, they still have fond memories of MacRay and here I am writing about it. Suffice it to say, that BMH rule book doesn't surprise me at all.

    Again, I'm curious to hear which of those rules are unreasonable or preventative of some essential activity.

    I was there at Belle Maer for 2 years.. There was not a rule I disagreed with... The emails of the new rules were always justified by the group or person that created the problem.. Belle Maer is grass, trees, parking at your slip, and a dock. You like that or not... If not, move on ... I wouldn't criticize the place at all.
    Your boat floats go somewhere else and enjoy ....summers are too short

    This is just my opinion that’s all. I have friends that love BMH and that’s cool. I see myself as a pretty easy going guy so it’s def not worth a pissing match to me about BMH vs MacRay. I just like to drink beer, boat and hang out with family and friends.
    Once again just my strong opinion, happy boating!

    Midexp, I don't know if you saw this or not. At the top of this site click on BOE MARINE website. They have the Garmin 8012 on sale for 1399.00. That's a great price I believe.

    Someone thinks there is a good reason to have so many rules or they would not have such a comprehensive set. As a person without a dog in this hunt, I was surprised by the number of issues covered. Seems like it could be stifling but that just me. For those who need complete order, perhaps this is they achieve it.

    That looks like a pretty good deal. Remember to budget for a card reader and charts.

    We are out of Island Cove marina in Harrison Township. Favorite spots are Goose Bay and occasionally the Moot if the right crowd is aboard. Out most weekends. We are on the channel between Anchor bay and the Clinton river so if you BM and MR folks are cruising your dinks to Bumpers for some drinks you are passing our transom.

    Finally got a launch date. May 10th. I would have gone in earlier but the canvas guy wants to take it in his shed, and I need a little better weather to wax out the hull.

    Great pic. I splashed yesterday. 28 degrees F this morning and high winds last night. Maybe I should have waited! splash 033018.jpg

    Thank you. Jeff Beach. We've been working on her for the last couple of months. When the docks open up in Caseville we will take her up there. We're newbies when it comes to a boat this size. We're excited to have her and get on the water!

    Hi All,

    I'm new to the SCS area and just purchased a 280DA that needs some work done on it. Do you guys have any recommendations for any local places? I'd be looking and getting some bottom paint and some mechanical items taken care of.
