Boating on Georgian Bay

Georgian Bay has to be the world's best fresh water boating paradise. It is part of Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes that straddles the Canada-U.S. border. On the east side of Georgian Bay lies the 30,000 Islands, and this year with the low water, there seems to be more than that. The myriad of islands and small bays create a haven for hanging on the anchor for the weekend while the wide open spaces of the bay provide endless hours of cruising especially appreciated by sailboaters. Sailboaters are lovingly know as "ragbaggers" or "blowboaters" while the power boat people are most often called "stinkpotters". Me...I'm a "stinkpotter".

Boating requires toys...and here is the Bay Dreamer... a 1974 Chris Craft Double Cabin fibreglas cruiser complete with twin V-8 350 c.i. gasoline engines. It is a comparatively old boat but as with boats of this era they will last forever when well maintained. We love this style of boat as it has lots of room inside the main cabin, will sleep six people, and has all the facilities onboard, including fridge, stove, microwave, TV, shower, and toilet.

UPDATE: Sadly, we sold the Bay Dreamer in 2004. We miss our boat and our boating buddies very much.
