Cruising Isle Royale
"Plans began to take hold when we moved from Indiana to Minnesota in the mid 1980's, towing a Dovekie rowing-sailing cruiser behind one of the family cars. But a 21-ft Dovekie lacked features considered essential on Lake Superior, like an engine, and a self-bailing cockpit, so we contented ourselves cruising less formidable waters, like Lake Vermillion, Rainy Lake, and the BWCA. Ten years later, after following a job from Duluth to Illinois, we traded up to Dovekie’s “Big Sister”, a 28-ft Shearwater Yawl. Shearwater had everything Dovekie lacked for cruising waters lapping the rocks of Isle Royale, a more weatherly rig, a hearty engine, a self-bailing cockpit, a companionway bulkhead, more capacity for everything, crew, provisions, gear, and waste tank."
