Default Big time overkill!!

I visited LOTO for the first time last weekend. It is a big inland lake, but 65' is a bit much. Just my opinion.

I guess someone has to be the big dog on the lake?

Lake Cumberland, KY is similar to LOTO, without all of the commercial and residential overrun of the surroundings. As far as boats go, I get a kick out of all of the big offshore powerboats on these lakes. What a shame. It's like buying a Hummer to drive back and forth to work in Iowa.

I can only take them in small doses, I like to see the scenery change throughout the summer.

If you ever experience the rough water at LOTO you'll realize why
The big stuff breaking your boats is caused by the guys trolling around in their 30-65' cruisers at w.f.o. tearing up the lake.

Yes it's overkill, but someone always want to be the big dog (most of you at LOTO know who that is). It's even difficult to find dock space at most of the bars and restaurants if you're over 50'. But I'll also admit that I'm guilty of looking at a 55' Chris Craft last year in FL, but the transport costs were outrageous.

Wink Well Fellas...

We have not made our final decision as of yet, but we have it narrowed down to the final two... We will soon be piloting a 80ft. Magnum or an 88ft. Pershing on LOTO!!!!! Ssherman, JBK, and myself have joined forces in efforts to be THE BIG DOG!!!!!!!!!
I don't know about you guys but I think we can do it!!!!!!
Now the only question that remains is "Where the hell are we going to keep it"??? Anybody have any ideas???

no, the question is, How are you going to get it there?
Actually, I hear that once that 2 lane stretch of 54 outside Eldon is finished, any size will be able to get through. Now think BIG!!!!
How about I get in on this and we get at least a 100ft high speed yacht. That should be able to wash a few docks away.
BTW, they do have docks for 60' boats at YCM.

Thumbs up Okay, You're In...

I forgot your the one that always has the chicks with you...
Plus, with the Sea-Doo there is no need to buy another tender!
So, now that you are in we need to think BIGGER... MUCH BIGGER!!!!! And BTW, since there are four of us we are definitely getting something that has at least one turbine...!!! NO EXCUSES!!!

The only reason there are any chicks on my boat is because of the two bathrooms. So, I figured the next boat should have at least 6 bathrooms (sorry, heads). If we lose the turbine, maybe we can fit in another one.
As for the tender, I think Shane has got more "use" out of it than I have this year.
BTW, where were you this last weekend? I was looking forward to doing some liver damage on your birthday.
