Default Lake Hopatcong

Just wondering who on the board runs the lake. I saw a bunch a go fasts within the last week including turbine eliminator, trip outboard cat, a baja that kicked my ass, 25 hustler talon (talon21) amongst a few others.

I thought the lake had a 35 mph speed limit during the season?

Regardless, it is quite small for a true offshore hull. We did most of our Shadow Cat testing on Lake Hopatcong back in the day and quickly ran out of room. I should also point out that it is usually calm enough for me to have done my OPC tunnel boat testing back then as well..

Today it seems there are too many boats and too little space for any of that. just MHO.....

No speed limit before memorial day and after labor, or year round during the week. They have never complained about noise either. It is small but for simple testing it's excellent.
