Default Not heading down then

but, the water temp is in the 80's, like bath water. The level I believe is about at it's normal level.

I'll be down this weekend and later into August.

Thanks Guys.. That water has always been warm in that lake.. what do they put in it LOL! Boat comes home this weekend to get ready, putting a big oil cooler on it because the oil is very hot now and I don't need any problems in cumberland..

so if all goes well, I'll be in a 18.5' powerplay, white/yellow/grey named "problem child" or in a blue/grey mastercraft with the stars

Just about the entire crew from Cincinnati hit Cumberland often, primarily CFD5 (25Outlaw White,Red,Black)and Ittlfli (26 AO allwhite with yellow seats). Expect a reply from them sometime soon. Later

we get the house boat from state dock, but it is docked up at alligator 1 I beleive... there 750's are docked up there because no room to dock them at state dock.. We usaully just find a spot close for the first day or two then move on. last year we went half way down wolf creek and tied up there for the whole week..

Just look for the houseboat with the huge CORONA banner hangin on the side..

I'll be there Jul 28 - Aug 5, too.
I'm a Lake Cumberland virgin.

We'll be on a Grider Hill 70'-er. Not sure where we will park it. I am not familiar with the lake beyond looking at the maps.

We will have my 311SR1 (white w/blue,red,yellow), a 20' Crownline (ivory with red), a 22' Cobalt (white/blue), 3 waverunners, a 15' diameter trampoline, satellite dish, and a big appetite.

Let me know the places I need to see while I am there. I already have a list of all the restaurants on the lake.

I've got to replace the impellers on the Formula.
