I'm guessing this might be why you throttle instead of drive

Yeah Ive read about Powell that lake looks to be pretty awesome, the drop on Cumberland is about 43 feet (723 above sea level is normal in the summer its at 680 now) they originally wanted to go down 30 feet more but that was scrubbed due to water intakes that would only have 3-5 feet of water to draw from and no power generation at that level

Glassdave what cove Ill look for it LOL

I've seen the pictures - you're pretty good at it
Hey, sometimes that's what it takes.
at least you know how to fix it, I would have to OVER-pay some guy like you to get my boat fixed
