It's the best one I've found for my boat. If you do use it use one of the three launches closest to the hwy. They are the farthest away from the shoal. Wish I could go out this weekend also but I'll be in Vegas. One of the three weekends I have off (which was last weekend) it was in the hi 40's - low 50's now it's going to be up in the 70's-80's. Have fun. Here's my boat at one of the docks at Pinacle.

Thanks RG
That's why you need us to help you and Becky out My brother lives near Lake Norman....I'm sure I'd make an awesome co-captain for this trip.

You tell my friend Becky I'll even throw in the tequilla and lemon drops

The lake is very low now. Be careful! Some ramps are going to be tough to use.

Charmed1- Thanks! Are you going out this weekend? We'll give you a call.

Barb- Of course your welcome to come. It would be great to have you and Rob along. We can fit six people and the dog ok. If yer serious let me know, I may even try to find a dog sitter then. We are considering staying till monday now.

Vagrant- thanks for the tip. I will be very careful. New boat, new lake, low water, I'll be very careful. I hope to hook up with a/some locals to keep us outa trouble.

You gotta love these forums! You guys are the best
Maybe we can return the favor when one of you want to come north.

Audra- will do!
Saturday night we won't venture to far as we won't hit the water till about 3pm and don't want to get to far away in the dark. Trying to get ahold of the Lake Norman Motel as I hear they have docks, reasonable prices, food and drinks. We now have 4 in the boat which sleeps 2. I looked up their number and it's being "checked for trouble?"
I got 704 478 2817?
Sunday we will try cover more water as we'll have all day.

This is what we'll be running. If any of you see us, flag us down to sey hey! Always nice to meet new people!

I read the boating laws on the NC wildlife site.
What are the rules about alcohol on the boat?
Ohio St parks allow none at all, WV allows it as long as the driver is sober.
