    I was wondering the same thing. I have a 558 "Winterlude". Anxious to hear what folks say. I want to take our boat from Fl east coast north then west to lake superior, apostle islands.

    Hello, New to this forum. Also owners of new to us 580. Yes, we were going to loop in 2019 and held up due to Covid. Definitely going to do it this year.
    Currently in S Fla and plan to start N around mid April. The issue will be Canada for us as our air draft even with radar removed is over height for Western Erie canal.

    Jim, congrats on the new boat and welcome to the forum.  Would be great if you and others who do the loop could provide updates for those of us thinking about it.
