Question lake anna drag boats this weekend?

Somewhere I heard of boat drags this weekend at Lake Anna near Fredericksburg VA this weekend. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I would greatly appreciate it, thanks. Forum search didn't pull up any hits.

Actually, I don't have a drag boat, I have a not so deep V. I live only an hour away from Lake Anna and I don't really get up there very often but when I have, there have been plenty of drag boats up there.

I just wanted to pass along the info that I saw as well...

It would be wild to go up and hear all those jet/drag boats running at once...Better bring ear plugs!!!

I would give the marina a call and check it out...

A word of caution about Lake Anna:

Lake Anna is a small (about 13 miles long) lake that was man made to cool a nuclear power plant. When they made the lake, they did not remove the stumps from the shallow areas. Right now, the water is down anywhere from 2.5-5 feet depending on when and who you talk to. Flatbottoms will obviously be less susceptible to damage there; but there are literally sculptures made at some of the marinas out of destroyed props, and lots and of ripped off outdrives. Ask Agressor 25; he went back to the stump that took his outdrive out, and reclaimed his destroyed prop and prop shaft.

I would be interested in going too, but I am seriously going to investigate the condition of the lake first. I would suggest calling some of the marinas listed on the other board; and if I get any info from my friends on the lake, I will post here.

I drove down to Anna last Friday. Just to see the water level for myself. Like Brian said, everyone says something different. It looks to be around 3 or 4ft low. The two ramps we usually use are gonna be iffy as to whether or not we can get our 25 ft boats in there.

We usually spend a lot of time at Anna. The water is clean and sometimes you can actually find a little rough water if you go down by the dam.

I wish I knew about the "regatta" earlier. I didn't think anything organized ever happend at Lake Anna. Especially Hi-perf boats!! I

I don't have a drive yet so I'll miss this weekend. Any plans for other get togethers later in the season?

Eric

Bucky, what size is your boat? I may not take mine if I don't get a Bravo in time. But may ride with Brian if he goes. Not sure yet, I need to work on the boat some too.

The water is shallow but for this I think it's worth it to see a bunch of bad v-drives and jet boats running around. Just have to keep a sharp eye on the depth finder and stay away from the normal shallow spots.

I think that Sturgeon Creek ramp is probably the best choice if you go.
