Hey Sonny,
Call me mid day Thursday and I can fill you in on the lake deal. I've been going to the lake for about 10 years now to dial in race boats that I have owned or boats that I have been involved with. Give me a call and I will go into more detail.

Tim,
Lake X is a private lake in Florida owned by Mercury and has a state or the art R & D facility.

Actually mercury does not own the land... a software company here in florida owns it called kirchman corporation... I drivr by their building every day on my way to work.... I read that they owned the land in the local paper by accident one day.

Been there 4-5 times. Try to contact your local Merc. Hi-perf. rep. I think he can help arrange it.
Very cool place.
