RT - That's a good point on weight capacity. I was chatting with a fellow over the weekend who brings in a crane to put his 10,000lb boat in the water. He said that the 25-ton crane was barely able to do the launch. I don't know much about cranes and capacities, but does that make sense?
She-Kon - I would be happy to go to Iroquois for yard and haulout. I think that it would be fun to have a good long first and last cruise each season.
We are headed to Kingston/Wolfe Island in August, so there may be an opportunity to check out some boats/yards along the way.
