    The simple answer to your question is yes. Low water late in the season can be a problem. It has been 3 years since I last visited the marina. The last 1/4 mile or so you have to go in on plane. To my knowledge they have not dredged the entrance to the marina. There are also lots of rocks on both sides of the channel entering the marina so it is VERY important that you stay in the channel. All in all it is an OK marina and it is protected from the lake when it kicks up.

    One last caveat (I hope I spelled that right) any time you get a strong west wind that builds over time and lasts for a day or two you will not be able to leave or enter the marina as the water blows to the other end of the lake and it then is to shallow to travel in the channel.

      It will be our first year at Breat Bay. I did alot of checking in the area and got good referals. Yes the water does go down in the fall. But if it's blowing that hard, you don't want to be on the lake. They are at the Detroit boat show, if you haven't gone go check them out. We are in Sterling Heights, have trailered the last two years to Sterling and Bolles. Gave up on Lake St. Clair so we decided to go back to Erie. You'll like it. They also have rack storeage. Their fees are very reasonable. Hope this helps you. Dave

          Didn't really give up on it. Just got to crazy with to many new alien boaters or should I say who purchased boats and have know idea of how to handle or respect other boaters. We still have a second boat a 20' Starcraft we use on St. Clair. Erie has better fishing ,the islands, and more room to stay away from the canadian border. Also can get to Toledo easier. That is where my wife and I grew up and family is. Started on Erie in 1969 when I returned from the service. So I guess we are just going back to our roots. Dave

                      Know it well. Bought 28 & 3288 Bayliners from Velgers. Wilson's in the old sales building now. Took them my Bennington to sell and they sold it the same day. Told them it was like new. Will have to get together and share a couple of barley pops some day.
