Seemed to me that there was a lot of traffic around the lake. Lots of people in there camps.

Hardly anyone on the lake Monday?

Nobody around on tues. Not many boats at docks or on buoy's ?

Anyone else feels this way?

I was out with the Formula for some feeling out runs Sunday and Monday. Didn't stray too far from the marina just in case. After losing 60+ HP with the new engine, I was very satisfied with the way it performed. Didn't run it hard, fastest was 66 MPH. I might play with it some more Friday afternoon.. :D

Hi Jake,

I am really starting to miss Capt Carls. Why don't you buy it and I'll help you out by stopping for a drink!

It was quiet on our end too. My son got a boat and went through three 18 gallon tanks. It's a little Checkmate. The Sheriff stopped him already and warned him for recklass driving. He called porpoising recklass. He was going slow. That's why it was porpoising. The guy said it looked like he was going to flip it over backward.

I just used the pontoon boat. I'll be picking my weekends to use the Warlock. I love the boat but it burns way to much gas. It takes the fun out of it when you pay 300 dollars for a few rides. Anyone want it? Maybe my next boat will have a 4-stroke outboard.
