    The funny thing is they don't tell you in the newsletter or the bill that dockage, carts and everything else is going up in price.

    We'll be back to Crew's next year even though prices have gone up. Cedar Point is still in question though. Ankle deep water wasn't fun last year and if predictions come to light then 2020 will awful at CP. Sorry Roller

    It seems counter-intuitive to react to low customer visitation by raising the pricing of dockage, doesn't it?


    It's true! It would make sense to spend more time at the islands, but if the prices are all going up... I didn't drop the hook a single time last season. Maybe 2020 will be the year to just anchor out.

    Same here, we only dropped it once to check the props after I hit something submerged... We have a good spot out in front of the marina..we were just talking about doing that more if the algae bloom isn't bad again

    I just checked the CN web site. Dockage went up 50 cents a foot to $2.5. Miller Marina also went up to $2.5. Must be price fixing on the Island

    Miller was $2.50 last year B & C has always been $2.50... Mentioned earlier CN was looking for more revenue from the boaters

    My boat is pictured several times on TCN's website. I should get a discount!

    We are about 18" lower today than we were at the peak this summer. Should go down a bunch more between now and March...

    Army corp said in a recent article that mid December is usually the low point for the lakes. Goes up from here

    Lets hope that's the case... but look at January each year...we are about a foot higher this year based on their forecast and it goes up about a foot and a half in summer from the Jan low...

    You?.... I was shamelessly used in an advertising campaign to solicite customers...:)

    Is that you stern in in front of the store on the web page?

    This thread brings me back to some solid elementary school humor from this past summer. Anytime we'd take the dinghy into town I'd be constantly reminded to go "Slow No". The 4-9 year old crowd got a real kick out of the revised Slow No Wake signs from 2019. My kids will lose their minds if it's just "Slow" next year. :)

    Sterned-in on C. The dammed thing about Crew's Nest is that mine is always the smallest boat in the pic. I should spend more time at Portside...

    "Portside, Portside, Portside, I'm hoping you have a dock big enough for my boat this wkd..."

    For sure! To feel better, I'll remind myself that next summer boats like Rampage will be paying $247 a night.

    We're starting out the winter with early snow. It's starting to accumulate. If the rest of the winter is like last year we'll be in record snowfall territory. We'll be sending some extra water to the Great Lakes in the spring.
