Our friends were making a trip across Lake Michigan, to Muskegon and then up to Ludington, and asked if we wanted to to join. We were essentially going to "live" on the boat and dock at the marinas once we arrived in those cities. It was something we've never done, so we thought why not. We left on Wednesday, right before noon (and right after a bon voyage mimosa!) when the lake looked to be the most calm, according to the coast guard. It took us 3.5 hours to get to Muskegon, with a stop in the middle for a quick swim and snacks.
