Here is a nice clean campground 5 miles up the road from me, just off I 75.

Dave is right, trailing will be needed. About an hour between my house/ Maumee river and the chain of lakes near Ann arbor.

I will do my best, slapping on a runner isn't an issue as I have a few to choose from,i need to find out if the darn thing floats!
I would love to find a 90-115 merc tower for her though as I grew up staring at a 63 merc 1000 from ages 1-8 and have loved old mercs since

I am in... I used to cruise the Chain of Lakes with my dad when I was a kid. Always loved it. Zukey Lake Tavern is a southeastern treasure that is known throughout Detroit. This weekend will definitely be a trailering event, but several options for lodging fairly close to each proposed run. Campgrounds nearby, not far, maybe 20 min from Ann Arbor for the Chain and you have Toledo and Monroe(recommended) close to Maumee River along witb campgrounds.

I'm in Mark!

Pam I have spent several weekends cruising the Chain of Lakes. Put in at Portage Lake and have lunch at the Zukey Lake Tavern.

Its smaller inland lakes with spots of no wake canal cruising. It's about 10 miles from the launch to the Tavern.

Sean- there is a hotel in my town and two restaurants.

Right now the water is about 45*, depending on the weather, maybe 65 or so. Not sure

Barrelback-we are thinking more South west. Center of the state, Possilbley the chain lakes. 7 lakes connected. I would like to get on a lake with a restaurant so we can stop and have lunch. :cookie: :cookie: :cookie:

Ray- that works for me :lol:

Jabe- You'd be lucky to get back over next week. Might as well stay :biggrin:

I'd certainly be interested! Are you thinking Lake St Clair as one of the inland lakes or more down by the OH/MI line?
