Thanks for the plug. I am the developer. We have full funding and have the first phase 25% sold out in the first 3 weeks of offering.
Yes, we do have MasterCrafts permission. They will, through Action Watersports of Hudsonville, have a sales outlet, service center, and pro shop on site.
No turn islands. Too much of a maintenance pain and the effect is marginal at best if you do a proper turn at the end.
As for the climate - I have lived in So Cal, Texas, and N Carolina. I would not trade the MI summer for anything. The winters...another story. We ride April - Nov/Dec. No wetsuits May-early Oct.
If you have questions, let me know. This is a high-end site for high-end users.
