Will be nice!!! But have you guys really had any problems with low water? Both last year and this year, I haven't had much of a problem.

Ray, are you going to make it to the OSO gathering tomorrow?

96Vyper, I haven't had a lot of problems but I have stirred a fair amount of sand at Muscamoot and the low levels have been a pain where I keep my boat at the mouth of the Thames River. I often leave it behind a friends house on a cut and the docks are built for higher levels. One of my buddies out there couldn't even keep his boat at his house because the boat would go right underneath the damn dock.

I have a ladder bolted to my seawall that has a rung that was sitting level with the water in july, which was when it was at it's highest last summer, the water is just below that rung rignt now, and it comes up alot during the spring, and keeps going up till mid july, so we should be alot better this year I hope. I didn't have any problems last year from the water levels, thank god ,but I sure heard alot of horror stories.

Milord, I wasn't brave enough for Muscamoot (not too familar with the ins and outs). Rode a Seadoo over there late last year and it looked really shallow. I've slowly got near Sand Island from Middle Channel without any problems.

Hey, are there any nice restuarunts on the Thames? My wife wants to travel to that side of lake for dinner.
