I was there back in 98' or 99' I believe... As soon as I find someone with a scanner, I will post some pics. I was sneaking around taking pictures of everything I could. I even got some pictures of those "Top-secret" mercury powered waverunner prototypes that never hit the market... VERY COOL PLACE!!!!

Timucin, It's easy!! Just load up the Skater on a Plane and fly it over here to the States and head for Florida, After you get that thing set up after a couple days of testing they give you the sticker!

I read an article in a boat mag when I was 10, never been able to get Lake X out of my head..... I need a supercharger then I can "need" to have it dialed in and there is not a better place than Lake X.... Only a 24 hour drive (thats w/ speedlimits....) maybe next year....

Aah Lake X, one of my favorite memories. Fantastic facilities, beautiful surroundings, all kinds of wild animals and guys that really know their boats. A couple of years ago my son was based at Lake X while on the Team Yahoo crew and I had the opportunity of seeing many of the top racing boats there. Met Craig (no longer there), one of the best in the drive business.

Some are speaking as though Mercury no longer does secret tests there. Unless things have changed recently they continue the secret tests and at times will shut the facilities down to everyone except those involved in the tests. Even when Nathan worked there, there were certain buildings he was not allowed to go into because of the top secret programs.
