For Great Lake Boaters

Several years ago before we got the boat we now own I had planned on spending a summer cruising the Great Lakes. With that thought in mind I put together an Excel spreadsheet that shows distances between ports on the lakes.

I did it using Google Earth, and the mileages I came up with might not exactly equal what your GPS shows because I included about a mile to go offshore when leaving a port and another mile coming back into your destination.

The cost? Free. Just send an email to me at gofirstclass@hotmail.com. I will reply to your email and attach the spreadsheet to it.

I had a lot of fun putting this thing together and I hope you have as much fun using it as I did assembling it.

Mike

Greetings,
Mr. Gm. Only covers US ports unfortunately. Lots of "stuff" to see on the north side of the lakes.

FYI There is a TSW website that has an interactive cruise planning tool. You can enter lock #s & cruising speed and it returns run hrs to make that leg.
Are you cruising TSW in 2019?

Mostly it's the big lakes but does include a few places in the North Channel.

Thanks BandB. I've used that, but more for playing around and "dream cruising" than to actually do any cruise planning.
