Default Smith Mountain Lake

I have been in the Roanoke area for about 5 years now. I hit the SML up a few times in the summer every year but because my boat was down, always had to rent. Well, now I that am operational and would love to meet some other locals. I have a 1987 Baja Force 250 named "Problem Child". If you see me out feel free to hit me up! I have seen several other nice boats on my trips around the lake. Several Baja's and others. Reply with your boat and name so I know who to be on the lookout for.



Finally out on the water

I'm about an hour south of you on the NC/Virginia border with a Formula 311. We have visited SML twice (boating and dinner) and LOVE it!
I have not had my boat out on the Lake but if I do get up there...I'll let you know.

We did the Poker run this year for the first time. Great people and we had a blast. We made the 3hr trip up to the SML 4 times this year and love it. Our home lake is Lake Anna as its about 30min away but we love SML so much more. Hope to make it up there one more time this year. We will keep an eye out for you. We launch out of Penhook.

Hey there, we don’t have a name on our boat, but have a 86 scarab panther. The classic white with red stripes, keep it over by the bridge at water wheel.

SML has some performance boats. I see about three or four every time we go. Always-different ones. Like most lakes, I think the trend is pushing towards pontoons and jet / ski boats.

Were you at Wallers / Drifters about three weekends ago with another Fountain?

As mentioned, there are a few. There was a bad accident with a drunk and a 38ZRC years ago, and there are are still people that don't like the go-fasts. But there a few that live full time on the lake, and a number of others that visit for the spring Poker Run with SMLBA.COM. And there is the SMLPBA.com as well. Member "mwdill" lives at the lake with their 388 Hustler, and is always out there. "DreJustice" here on OSO also has a place there and has had a number of go-fasts including Ultra, AT, and currently a badass DCB.
