The best weekend on the lake is coming up soon, the weekend of Sept. 10th-11th, the LC Poker Run. It's a don't miss event and like I previously mentioned the best weekend of the year IMO. Huge boat turnout and some wild partying both in Harmon Creek during the day and back at State Dock at night.

I was reading that one of the Marina's takes all there rental houseboats and keeps them docked at marina and rents the rooms out. Whats the details on that?

That is at State Dock, the host of the Run. It's called the 'boatel'. You have to be a participant in the Run to be able to rent one, even so they are guaranteed to be booked by now. Most other rental houseboats from other marinas around the lake sell out the day after the Run from people reserving one for NEXT year! It's by far the most crowded weekend on the lake every year. Don't know if you'll have any luck finding a place to stay this late but you can always sleep in that nice new cuddy.

Here's the info for it

Here is an aerial of Harmon on Saturday after the run from a couple years ago.

Congrats on the new Checkmate. VEry nice looking boat. I am sure you will be very happy with it. I have a 253, which is pretty much the same boat, yours has a different deck but the hull is either identical or nearly identical.

It rides really well for it's size and with the 502 it should run well too.

Thanks guys. They are definitely a cool boat. I couldn't believe how clean this one was. Ive ran the boat a few times before I bought it and it scoots pretty good. We will find out this weekend for sure.
