Hey Subs,

Do you want to try and get Toronto Arts Council funding for some surf photography?

Sub, can I submit a photo you shot of me to a mag with a letter I wrote?  I will be sure to credit you.  P.S.  what would I credit you as, subsonic?

we would paddle in...
the first couple waves would be the nicest
there were two sets of waves because of the catamaran hull
small waves would linger around for 15 - 30 mins

Oh yeah, that thing is a beast... the Miss Midland is probably half that size. Did you guys tow in, or paddle in? There's gotta be another ferry nearby.

yeah it probably doesnt kick up as much wake as this thing
it used to make anywhere between 1' and 5' waves depending on their angle of approach and speed

Oh man, sounds fun. There's a ferry up in Georgian Bay I've been meaning to scope out, the Miss Midland. It leaves from Midland and does 4 tours a day. It tours around a bunch of islands, but it gets moving pretty quick on the open water. It's probably not as big of a boat though, so I'm not sure how big the wake gets.
