Georgian Bay is about a 30 minute drive from here. I'm actually in a town on the Great Loop. What's interesting is, a few weeks ago, I didn't know what that was. Now I understand why there are usually such a variety of amazing boats around here.
So guessing you are on the Trent Severn Waterway? I'll even guess maybe around Lake Simcoe??? Near Orillia???
If so, you have the best of both worlds... boat can be close to home with easy access to some absolutely wonderful cruising grounds.
Make it a point to "walk the docks" or locks and chat with some of those "Loopers". Most have interesting tales and love talking about their boats.
We have connected with several TF members in that area and enjoyed the opportunity to talk live instead of through our keyboards.
