    I went to the lake Sunday 09/13. The lower boat launch is open. Knowing the lake, I don't drop the big motor down until I am out deep. The boat pushed off the trailer just fine, and with the light breeze, it should have drifted to the dock right there. But I bottomed out 1 foot away from the dock. I have an 18 foot deep V hull aluminum. Luckily there was minimal wind. If you plan on taking your boat here, I would recommend using the dock with the renal boats to tie up to. And use the trolling motor when you launch and put boat back onto trailer.

    Inspections are not as bad, blonde lady and the guys are pretty good about it. Shorter brown haired girl is a nazi.

    All that money spent on new trucks complete with deer guards, winches, off road tires etc, they could have built a hot water wash down station. So ridiculous
    Rant over

    Lake morena needs quagga mussels anyway. Hopefully they clog up all the pipes and the city can’t take the water anymore.
