Re: [MessaboutW] Re: Toledo Show


 

The Coots and other exhibitors usually use the launch ramp Downriver from Toledo by the airport; it's a good ramp with plenty of parking. It will be "upstream" (uptide) from Toledo Friday afternoon. It'll be "upstream" again when you want to get back to it Sunday afternoon, but that's not a problem for boats with even small motors (but maybe a problem if you've only got an electric trolling motor...) -- the tides aren't fierce that weekend. Tows from motorboats can usually be arranged, if needed. Or stay over until Monday and have the tide behind you Monday morning.
