Tank- Great pics of an even better time! Please don’t take this the wrong way, but your pictures reflect what we do every weekend at LOTO…..rip up and down the lake in cool boats, hang with great friends and indulge in the Lake food and drinks! Having said that, I’m always excited to share our little bit of fun with others that come from different parts of the country. I love it that Mark, Brett and their entire team have been able to showcase their facilities, hospitality and put our little bit of water in the spotlight for so many different people throughout the years of hosting the Cigarette Rendezvous. Honestly, it reminds me not to take our weekends granted, which is easy to do at points throughout the year. I’m thrilled you guys had a killer time and hopefully your group can make it back in August for the Shootout!

Where were you and your crew Chad?

I can say with confidence that LOTO is the big dog performance boat capital of the Country (which by default - world). Everywhere you go and look there's some crazy azz hardware. We joke about it in our circle that it seems every cigarette eventually winds up in LOTO at some point. And really that goes for most high end performance boats. I remember the old threads of LOTO vs Havasu, LOL good times. The whole boating experience between those two lakes is totally different. Both have their plus and minus' Kind've a double edge sword so to speak with the more the word gets out and the more events at LOTO the more crowded it gets and the more people inundate it. Same thing is happening in Havasu. Most locals stick to boating on off weekends or weekdays to avoid the crowds. Cool to see all the crazy hardware and people having a good time but on the flip, more people, more crowds, etc...

I will say each time we go to LOTO we love it more and more. I don't know if we'll make it for the shootout, wife is like HELL NO because of the heat and humidity but what I heard, the weather doesn't get much hotter than when we were there last weekend. Everyone kept saying, "this is like Aug heat" which makes me think....We can do that

Yamaha makes a nice CC that`ll do 60mph .. I`ve thought about it .lol
I mean this little 19' got way more room than my 38', hanging out on the swim platform is great and easy, bimini top to get out the sun, I opened the hatch once all weekend just purely out of habit, no oil, no water, nothing to clean or check, it`s great!! Docking I still can`t figure out, that one jet does nothing at low speeds..... purely a day boat thou . No overnights .
