    just saw the 25% off deal Phil. Sorry I am blind!! Read too quickly initially! With the 25% off... that's pretty close to my price, dang!!! I'll ask them if they supply a tow vehicle, if they do, I may switch indeed!!

    Thanks for looking out for me Phil! I really appreciate it. The place I rented from was $300 for the day, I thought that was very reasonable. I think this link was $450. So looks like i've found an OK deal. Now, just to launch it successfully (and get a sunny day!) and we're in business!!! Hope it all works out! Oh, wait, yeah. 25% off so you're right... that's pretty close to my price, dang!!! I'll ask them if they supply a tow vehicle, if they do, I may switch indeed!! .

    Yes, you did :-) You called it a washing machine, and i had a good laugh LOL Wow , 8 lanes, sweeeet! I will def. see the webcam, it is freaking 2am now so all dark LOL Getting excited! I will have my hitch with a 2in ball to put on the uhaul pickup and an adapter 5 pin to the round one that I used on my trailer when hooking up to chevy suburban. Hopefully this setup will work or the rental place will have some adapters on hand if something else... Otherwise, are there any good stores in Page that might have these adapters? Except Uhaul store itself i guess.

    Hey Phil, sorry, the forum was down all day when i wanted to reply. Now it is back up. Plan is for June 14, so that sounds OK maybe... perhaps it will be open by then! OK Stateline launch sounds great. Yeah, I love less traffic and shorter walking distance. I used to live in KS and they had a massive launch to one of their crappy lakes - it was I kid you not, a width of about 15-20 vehicles, meaning that many could launch at the same time - just a crapload of concrete, so nice.... Here in Ontario, boating is even more popular and folks have expensive yachts (but season is shorter) and the widest launch I've seen is 3 cars wide. The cut sounds great. Keeping my fingers crossed. Update me when you hear something. Boy i feel like i live there and know everything about the place with your help!!! So awesome! If you ever come to Ontario I will pay you back and tell you everything you need to know about Georgian Bay!

    OK, many thanks Phil, sure, if the cut is closed like you say it might be, I will do that. Maybe i will inquire on the forum you gave me the URL to right before i leave for the trip. someone will surely know... Love the name the Dam Bar LOL. I get all the meanings of this cool name! LOL We have a place here in town called Dam Income Tax. LOL. But we do not even have a Dam in the area! So that is nowhere as funny LOL

    I said PITA because i suppose i'd need to give the keys to the uhaul to someone and then call them (and wait?) when we are back. My cell phone may not work since it will be roaming... not sure how the radio works (never used on in my life and where would i find it anyway?).

    Immense help, thanks Phil. OK, i will shoot for the Wahweap then IF the CUT is open, sounds like a bit of a PITA to use that valet thingy. If you hear about it, can you let me know (the cut being open).

    Oh wow, thanks Phil, dang, so the Antelope Launch is closed, darn it!!! I can see the cut on the map, great idea thank you! Wahweap is a lot further so yes, I will ask about the cut before but i'd rather save time than $15! How does the 15 dollar valet work?? Still using that launch or something else? As to parks, we are thinking just Zion .. i think it said 25 per family plus 15 per car so that is 40... I mean we will also do Grand Canyon and i think that is also 35.. No other parks so hmm.. comes out to the same cost more or less. Still thanks for the idea. We will not have time for any other parks unfortunately.

    they want 100 for a rental tow vehicle which is standard so i booked a uhaul pickup truck in page for about $40 after milage. hope it all works out. planning to be on the water around 11am... is that too late?? in Ontario, i rarely get out before 11am. Planning to launch in Antelope Point Launch Ramp. Hope they don't rape me with launch fees. I've read somewhere it is 35 USD to enter the area or something like that? so maybe launch is included? Then I want to go straight for the Padre island and the area and have 2-3 hrs there. that is the plan. Any other pointers and must-know's , pls share! Also, hoping for a nice sunny day!!

    Hey Phil, I have found a decent place using trip advisor. Wow. full day for 300. Not bad at all considering lake powell marina wanted 100 per hour!!!! i just need a tow vehicle but they supposedly have some. if not, i will try a uhaul truck for a day. shouldn't be a problem i hope. place is called B & T Marine. Not kidding about the rates. Other places wanted exactly twice that ...550-600. I found another one for 340 so definitely gotta shop around, it took me hours to find it. Hope weather cooperates!!!

    Phil, I have an offer.... u ready? Take me and my 3 kids out to padre bay for 1-2 hrs and I will pay you the rental money plus gas! 3-4 hrs total. June 14. Can you? i';ve had no luck so far with rental places and i fear i will miss out. i am there only one day and want to do it so bad. kids are 12-17, not brats or anything. If you would consider but 14th doesn't work, i could potentially reschedule things and do 13th instead.

    Hi Phil, so I have contacted these guys for a day rental (http://www.lake-powell-boats.com/rentals.html), their rates seem excellent but ... then i read they require TWO days rental (what??). I am only gonna be there one day, and so do many tourists i suppose. I emailed them to see if they can do one day for a bit extra and drop the boat in the lake for me (I will only have my sedan over there). BUT in the meantime... can you tell me if there is any way to get to Padre Bay without a boat if for whatever reason i cannot get one? I really want to spend some time over there, looks fantastic... swim and just relax a bit. I looked at the lone rock beach and the views/scenery is nowhere close to teh Padre bay area. I am afraid the answer is no? I also didn't want to do a tour as they won't anchor the boat for us for an hour to swim and relax....

    Fantastic info thanks Phil. I will go over all of that very carefully.... That is exactly what I was looking for BTW, raw info from someone who knows the place inside and out. Thanks! PS. I have no idea how far i want to go, therefore i've reached out for help. I just want to get to the pretty places like in the link in my OP and swim a bit (and not go broke from a rental). Will load a map and study the info you've provided now.

    ok thx guys. no, i will have just my sedan over there. thanks for the suggestions. so it sounds like you are saying a 4hr rental may not cut it???
