Nice, yeah we are west of bigfoot just before the narrows. Trinke Estates, by the boat launch on hillside. The S2 is the only sailboat on the lake with a black mast, so give me the finger if you see me out there! haha

A good friend of mine lives in Trinke. He is on the lake right next to the lagoon. I'll have to look for your boat.

When I was younger my grandma bought a Donzi Z23 Sport Deck for the family, was an awesome boat. We would have 9-10 people on it and it would still get up and move pretty decently.



Minus the ski rack. I really want to find another boat. Maybe when I'm rich some day.

Nope....I walk by there a lot as my wife's family is right next door in the beach association. My friend's place about a block away across the airfield.

To me boating is all about the people, that is exactly the recipe I am looking for.

My grandfather had a pontoon boat and it was pretty awesome; not fast or anything but could hold a lot of people. He also lived right off the lake (had a little channel thingy to get to his house from the lake, don't know what those are called).

Anybody near the Fontana side of the lake? That's where my family's place is at.

Also, since my family just got the place, they're looking for a nice, used boat. I found this one: 1999 Regal 2800 LSR 300hp 350Mag MPI

I like it b/c it's not a pontoon but has similar seating arrangements of one, which is the biggest pro of a pontoon.... Family liked it too but maybe someone here who knows their boats could give some more direction and advice

That would be a good boat for LG if they want to go with a bow rider. It gets rough out there, wouldn't hurt to have a bigger boat.

x2 that would be a good size and layout for LG, our 17' sea ray sucks, too small and hull design just beats the shit out of you when its rough out there.

Pontoon's are good on a smaller lake where you cant really go anywhere. They are good for taking alot of people out and just cruising slow.
