We've taken the boat up there a few times for day trips only. My wife loves Lk George. I like it, but it is kinda strict. We have never had a problem with police. I just follow the speed limits, wave and try to mind my p's and q's. I make sure my permit is placed on the windscreen. It's only like 8 bucks for the day. No big deal. It did take some serious research to find a decent launch. We go to either Castaway's or Fishers.

BTW, where is a good marina/hotal to stay with the boat for the night? It seems all the marina's/hotels have very small guest slips (if any for that matter) for overnight accomadations. The boat is 30' so I would need something decent.
I know they do not allow any anchoring in the bays overnight. Kinda silly, but oh well.

agreed. Its buoyed, but the water level changes can mess you up if you are new. Best way to play is with someone like RJ as a guide.

I have to say that LG is one of the best buoyed places that I have ever been. If you pay any kind of attention you are pretty good to go there.

I will say that the marking of the Sacandaga could be better for people that are not familiar with it. But most of the problems happen when the lake is down 8' or more and people run inside the markers. I can't recall anyone having a problem during the poker runs or fun runs. I've run the lake when the level was 13-15' below normal.
If anyone wants to come up and run, let me know and I'll try to show you a good time. I'll even supply refreshments.

I don't think so. Last time I talked to him he said Insurance was getting to be a big problem. I'm thinking of having a "FUN RUN" near the end of June. Nothing spectacular, just a bunch of us having a good time..

Yes he did sell the TG.
