We currently run a 1988 Fiesta Vee 250 5.7 on Lake Michigan. We travel when the weather is right. We have radar, charts, plotter, ect.
I'm considering upgrading to 1994 Fiesta Vee 280 twin 4.3s. The reason is for redundancy in the event of a motor becoming disabled. My fear is becoming disabled and ending up on the rocks while waiting for sea tow. The additional motor would eliminate that concern. The extra space and size would be nice but not necesarrily a factor in the decision.
At this time we don't intend to run across the lake.
Our initial goal is to go north to Sturgeon Bay from Milwaukee, around the Door Peninsula and back to Milwaukee.
Can anyone offer advice or thoughts on this senerio?
