I have taken my little 10ft row boat with a 5.5 hp motor over to Mac. If i end up getting a bigger boat I will take people out there for just gas money.

This might be a way for someone to make a few bucks in the summer. Call it hotshot to Mackinac and be on call. Or a scheduled trip every now and then. It would be more for fun then as a business.

I suppose licensing, insurance, docking places, fuel costs, etc. would be required, and that makes it unappealing, but it is a thought.

Back around 1900 this was common.

my son ( Lonnie Todd ) and his family will be on the island with us a few days this summer .. he has not been there in years and his wife and children never ..I was thinking it would be fun to take them to round island ...

so if anyone out there could do this for a fee please let me know ..in the mean time I will contact the few that was mentioned here ..
thanks for the input ...
