Agree with your reasoning and nice to have the boat close to home. I'm also from the Toledo area and have kept boats here but have been out at Catawba Island Club the last 6 years. Water is MUCH nicer out there, lots more destinations, less concern about shallow spots and logs and nicer facilities (CIC). I understand wanting to take a few longer trips, but you will find that you are running thru lots of fuel if you go to the islands frequently and FYI, Lake St Clair is the same distance from Catawba as TYC!I'm definitely very new to this, and I don't know how it'll play out, but I bought a boat because I want to be boating. It'll take a little longer overall to get to the islands keeping the boat in Toledo than it would if I kept it over in Catawba, but I think I'd rather be on the water for that extra time, as opposed to more time in my car. Plus, this way a cruise up to Lake St. Clair is also easily doable. Also, I can easily head up after work and take a short evening cruise. We may end up not liking it this way, but that's why we chose to try it. If we don't like it we can always move.
