ontario: Fourth edition of "The Superior Way: A Cruising Guide to Lake Superior" is now available - 06/28/08 11:18 AM
If you're a Lake Superior sailor or power boat owner, you'll want to pick up the latest edition of Bonnie Dahl's much-praised "Cruising Guide to Lake Superior".
The newly-available fourth edition includes wilderness anchorages around the "big lake".  And there are over 350 GPS waypoints plotted for sailing and boating enthusiasts.

I still have my trusty second edition and I've always loved this book.  The section on the Apostle Islands is detailed and easy to follow.  The spiral binding lets pages lie flat on a chart table for easy reference.  You'll find harbor maps, wilderness charts, information on marine facilities and navigational … (4 comments)

ontario: Lake Superior Water Level Drops at an Alarming Rate - 11/01/07 09:34 AM
Lake Superior's water level is dropping and it's causing alarm all over the Great Lakes region.  The largest of the Great Lakes is at an eighty-year record low water level, causing problems for boaters and especially for huge commercial ore freighters. 
Major companies that rely on Great Lakes shipping to transport taconite ore, coal and grain through the lakes are responding by reducing loads, which threatens the future of the entire shipping industry.
