RE: Lake Ontario cruisers or any of the other Great Lakes!!
Ron, great to hear from you and good luck in your search for a boat.
Now that we have brought Delia Rosa home to Lake Ontario from New Hampshire, we have only been cruising on Lake Ontario... no other long trips yet.
Lake Ontario cruising we have found can be more difficult than some of the ocean cruising we did on the way home. *Sometimes the weather is not quite what was predicted and while big ocean swells are quite comfortable and easily handled on our boat, *the same height waves on a lake are not so much fun.
I will say though that just being out on the water is what I love. *So we listen closely to the weather forecasts and then plan carefully in case the weather changes unexpectedly!
