did it once with the Breeze.....would never do it again though, especially this time of year.....check google map and you will see why...

the tack to get around burns harbor is treacherous; it takes you bout a mile offshore, and the jetty is a good 30 foot above water level with gargantuan granite boulders to climb if you ever were to have a mishap!!!

....you could always leave a car before burns harbor and get out of water before all of that riff-raff, cause it is a dangerous scenario out there...good luck and keep it safe! :)

The forecast looks to be more north than west now, and could be straight on shore for the bottom of the lake. I'm going to hit Montrose if its North enough...

Montrose would be ideal. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I'll be up all night. Monitoring the wind. :D
