Default Lake Norman NC

Does anyone know if they have a speed limit on Lake Norman? A bunch of guys that I boat with thought it would be fun to go down there on Mother's Day when the NASCAR guys have time off and see if we can find a boat race. Probably get our butts kicked, but it would sure be fun playing with them rich boys. Please post if you have any information.
Thanks, Tom Earhart

Tom no speed limit on Lake Norman. As far as a boat race I don't think you will have to ride around to long before you find one. Watcha bringin.

Mark, I have a 24 Eliminator with a twin turbo 572" chevy, B-Max drive, and Herring prop. It accelerates hard to about 130 mph
Thanks, Tom

Tom, your running 130 n a 24' boat, I think as long as its not rough you will be able to hold your own your nuts!

There is always someone willing to play. If you go in the afternoon though, it's going to be rough for a 24' boat. Spectre, Skater, Eliminator, DCB, Nortech can be found on any given weekend. Send me a PM and I will put you on my FUN RUN e-mail list !

I know of at least a half dozen 130 mph plus boats on lake norman now. I know the big skater is suppose to be around 160 now. Plenty of 100mph boats. Mothers day weekend is when most of the nascar boys are with their families, but they do occassionly get out on the water on Saturday.
Come on down, and let us know when you are coming, and we can help you find a place to put in and where to stay and eat.
