Default Spring Break help.

Planning on going to LOTTO, but going to be cold and rainy. Have new 33 Active Thunder and want suggestions in TX on where to go with housing and slip. Water depths and hazards a concern. Lakes considering. Texoma, Conroe, Travis. Also concerned about long drive because we are coming from So. Wisconsin.
Hoping to leave this Saturday for a week.
Any information would be great,
Jeff & Lynn Seager

Well, all those lakes are a pretty good trot from each other. Travis is huge and full. Travis is really the CO river, so its 45miles of nice and wide river. I'd skip Conroe. Texoma is on your way into TX from WI. Brown and rather silty. While smaller, Canyon Lake is my lake, about 45min from Travis.....

You get that blue/wht/slv 33AT from GSC?

Yes, I recognize your name from the site. We are coming from a 2005 30 Outlaw with 496Hos. What's bad about Conroe?

Is the Cumberland River near Nashville conducive to use our boat safely. We just keep searching for decent weather conditions and not to far of a drive. We can work with 65 to 70 and some sun. The other consideration has been Lake Lanier, GA. They have a condo close to Port Royal marine were we can mour our boat. It looks like the lake is ten feet down. Will that be a problem. Thanks, for everyone's help.

Lake Travis is great and you can rent a very nice house on the water pretty reasonably.

We went to the Ozarks. The waters down five feet and it's cool and going to rains some of the days but we're it's a shorter drive. We put on over 80 miles yesterday. I still maybe interested in your props if there what I need and you still have them. There are Maxximus 32 from merc on there now. I want to make sure it runs around 5400 rpm. With full tank of fuel I don't get there yesterday.
