Hi

Just checked Google last night and it knocks 3 hrs off the run from Toronto.

Sounds like a nice idea!

Cheers

Mark

Sounds as if the boat could be the most important part of the trip! (Long way to swim! :lol: )

lets see. last year the Anderson's drove exactly 1751 Kilometers from Etobicoke , ( suburb of Toronto Ontario) . we do the trip in 2 days. Leave Toronto and get to Columbus Ohio, Then straight in to destination. Even though I was brought up on miles I now think in Kilometers so someone has to do the math for conversion!!!! This years event is not quite as far so I am thinking about 1700 km's . Can't wait!!!! I am repacking my trailer bearings this weekend!!!!

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.
