    Re: LOTO wave problems recognized...

    I was down for the shootout a 2nd year and agree that it gets quite rough. I have a 30 footer but its old and heavy so the ride isn't as bad as the newer boats. Besides we boat on Lake Michigan and it isn't so forgiving itself. I haven't ever been in big water ;ie; the Ocean but guys that I have talked to in the past say they prefer it over lakes like these. Oh well I'll take what I can get and have fun with it, hell i got it 4 foot out of the water on the river the other day going around a 39 ray not trimmed out and digging a hole.

    Re: LOTO wave problems recognized...

    It's not the lake's fault that people drive like they do!!! I have been going to LOTO for 10 yrs and I agree that it has gotten much WORSE over the years. I also agree that the dmg to property could be avoided/lessened if people would just be considerate of there surroundings. I also boat on lake Mich 99% of the time it's a nice change to have the "calm" conditions of LOTO as a change. It all depends on you perspective...just my .02 BZ

    Re: LOTO wave problems recognized...

    One lesson I learned growing up in boating was that "you are responsible for your wake". I always thought if I caused any damage or distress, I was at fault. Is this not a general rule? As a 12 year old I got busted big time by the Harbor Patrol in Newport Beach for making a tight turn and causing a wave. Whats the current rule/law on wakes and is it national or only regional?

    Here is where I am. Silky smooth even on the holidays, at least at the dock. 1/2 mile away is a whole different story.

    Man, I have respect for you guy's- its got to be a real trick getting your boat on/off your hoist on the weekends down there.

    Re: LOTO wave problems recognized...

    I am on the busiest part of the lake, I don't really mind. Our docks do take a pounding so our condo assoc. were involved in enforcing the no wake on weekends through the Glaize Bridge area (sorry).When I get my boat I will keep it in a cove though and since I do live here I will do a lot of my boating during the week.
