Sucks not to make it. Last year we had a pretty good taste of things on Sunday when I was broken. With out at least one boat between us you might as well not even bother to show up.
probably the best seat in the house!Originally Posted by Cord
sorry to hear you guys arent coming this year
Thanks for all the input. We will be renting a 4 bed 3 bath condo at Park Viewbay along w/ 2 boat slips. Per everyone's advise, we will be leaving the 22' and 26' @ home and will be taking a 28 cig and a 30 baja.
Good choice.Originally Posted by yss
Also, you have a strip of no wake to go through to the shootout, about 3/4 miles. It is patroled closely. Do not stretch your luck there....
You have made excellent choices on the boats and the condo, you'll have a blast.!
Honestly, somebody could have gotten hurt if you had taken the 22 footer. LOTO has become borderline dangerous for anything under 27' during the busy times in my opinion, and nothing is busier than the Shootout.
When I had the 232 Baja, I had many waves break over the top of the windshield, and swamp the boat. It was scary. The area around mile marker 19 is the worst, where everything comes together. The wife and I decided we would never go back until we got a bigger boat. Thankfully we did.!
And mile marker 19 is exactly where you will enter the no wake zone that leads to Parkview Bay. It will be like a wash machine right in front of the no wake. The other place that can get pretty nasty is the 90 degree turn right before the entrance to Party cove. Make sure to keep the nose up or you will definitely bury it.Originally Posted by Madmax
We used to just run back and forth from Parkview Bay to the mouth of Party cove and back just for kicks, and to practice good driving habits in nasty water. You will know exactly what I mean when the shootout weekend comes.
i can charge $1 for rides on my dock at the 18 MM..... it gets a rockin..
just keep the nose up and the hammer down thats when it gets fun......just kidding 1st time there be careful it can be rough in that area......
Sean, which side of the lake are you on. I am currently in the process of selling my place at Parkview and moving down to one of the townhouses being built by 4 seasons at the 4MM, all thed way back in the cove and adjacent to Witches Cove golf course.Originally Posted by Sean H
I'm kind of looking forward to getting away from the 19MM, but especially getting tired of going through the no wake everytime we go to the main channel on the weekends.
