Cool Change
« on: June 04, 2014, 06:21:32 PM »

We are finally getting some very nice weather in the Great Lakes.  Cool Change will go in the water on Wednesday and we will be leaving for the North Channel and Georgian Bay on Friday.  Boat is waxed. Made a few electrical changes.  Appreciate all the advice that I received from this association this past year.  I did install a solar panel and will give a report at the end of the summer. We do not have a smart home or iPad.  This is my final report and my wife and I are going to enjoy the wilderness.  Attached is the solar panel. 
Thanks, Paul

Smooth sailing and fair winds. I admire the smartphone and iPad disconnect... Tough to do! Enjoy!

Enjoy the summer.  Do you think you could take my daughter with you, she could use a little time away from her smartphone.

Just spoke to Paulus (s/v Cool Change) yesterday (Sunday, 6/15/2014) afternoon (telephone). Paulus is single-handing s/v Cool Change and was having fairly heavy weather (40 knot winds and storm approaching) when I spoke to him.  He was heading into Detour, Michigan on the west side of the St. Marys River (which runs between Lake Huron & lake Superior). He then plans on sailing east across the river to an anchorage at Harbour Island in Potagnnissing Bay.  Harbour Island is just north Drummond Island which is one of the U.S. Islands forming the southern boundary of the North Channel (NC).  It's about 40 miles NEE from Harbour Island across the NC to Blind River, Ontario (on the north side of the NC) where Paulus usually checks-in to Canada.  We'll be joining him on s/v Weal Sea in the NC in July.  If interested, I had previously put together a short "Web Page" on the NC (following a trip there in 2003) which you can use to check out part of Cool Change's route. The route shown is the one Paulus typically follows. Here's the web address for the Main "Menu";  Click on item #10 [Photo Journal: North Channel Cruise: Part 2 (The Channel)] to see "Cool Changes" route --- Web Address:

Had a very nice visit with Paulus in Charlevoix  on his trip north from Muskegon on the way to the North Channel.  Cool Change is one heck of a nice C34.
