Just wondering if enough interest in a gathering of sorts... I usually see several around Sand Island, but never know who is on board or not.

I know of several in the area, but not on Watts Bar (Norris, Loudon, TL, Melton Hill). Maybe do a 'meet and greet' at Wild Wing Cafe for one of the Thursday night Rail Jams?

We live in Dayton, but could definitely make the run up the road to the metropolis of Spring City. :D

Hopefully, we will have ours running again the next couple weeks.

The best part of Watts Bar lake is the head waters of the lake, upstream (mile marker 6 - 8) on the Emory river. The waters down toward Rhea / Meigs county and lower Roane county are a little rougher from wind and boat traffic. The (relatively) new 4-lane on highway 27 make it easy to access the upper part of Watts Bar.

I would some what agree, all depends on where ya go.. I know around from our place no one, I mean no one... would ease in a certain cove... Now its stacked with boats, I think boating in general is just busy busy... Then add jet skis... and look out...

Since some people are posting... How about post your boat too.. So maybe could identify ya

Fireworks in Spring City at 10 pm about 5-10 min ride from Sand Island.. you head south from Sand island toward Dam turn right first right.. and follow up channel then bare left.. run straight. Usually about 150 boats or more at show time.

We will probably be at Sand Island during the day on Saturday and then we will run back up to Spring City for the fireworks. I will look for you. I havent seen another blue and white stars and stripes like mine at Sand Island, so if you see us, drop by and say hi. You can even follow us up to the fireworks if you want. I actually put in at Rhea Springs which is right next to where we anchor to watch the fireworks.

First time in 20 years the main channel was glass .. Nothing like a sunset Run. Look forward to seeing some MC's tomorrow

It was SO nice on Chickamauga last night too. We made the sunset run all the way from the river and i think i hit one series of waves. Other than that, it was glass. We are heading to Watts Bar in a few hours. Just look for the blue and white stars and stripes with the extremely sun burned driver in it! :D

I looked for you guys Saturday. I saw a few MasterCrafts, but sand island was a little crowded. I think I saw someone being towed behind a TWRA boat...

DBrown2
07-05-2011, 09:40 PM
On Sat I was sitting behind stack of Yellow Bryants actually talking w TWRA guy. If u get to know them kinda cool job if u think about it. If your a complete tool and can't handle your beverage u get towed. I pulled out Sat after watching some kid that looked 16 holding a jug of Jack and a.
And a case of Beer yelling .. at some women only for him to fall forward out of boat.. w a face plant. Humorous but time to go.. I walked over looked at a X Star.. and a X45.. Sunday I tied up next to a sweet 89 MC 190. Maybe next time.. I should b back out in SC this weekend

rmasterson
07-05-2011, 09:48 PM
Yes. We saw a few of those drunks too. We were tucked in behind a pontoon boat to keep the kids away from the morons behaving badly. We have been mostly going to Chickamauga and hanging out at the island where the Hiwassee dumps into the Tennessee River. We call it party island. I'm not sure if it even has a real name. It's like Sand Island only better. Come down and see us some time.

Just a Bump, Look for the Maristar... Navy/White at Sand Island or Dickie's Bluff area. All day Sat and Sunday evening. I feel like the Axis, Malibu, Moomba's are taking over the lake.

DBrown2
06-26-2012, 03:22 PM
Looking to see, who is going to be out for the 4th. Saw a sweet X2 08 or newer, on Saturday, along with a 78 Star and Strips, Gold Metal Flake.

Well since No one new replied... I will share what I saw Sunday about 3PM. I was unfortunately in my In Laws boat... non MC.

We are just enjoying a family cruise up the lake to visit some folks, when out of the corner of my Eye... I spot a familiar boat, so I jumped on Instagram to double check my thoughts and told my father in law to turn around.

As we approached sure enough its the MC X Star Pro Tour Boat... and yes all you Tube Haters that is a Giant Tube on Top... It appeared they were shooting some Surf footage so we watched from a distance and didnt invade. The one time I am not on my X Star and I see this, I would have loved a Family Portrait with both boats sitting on the body of water I have played on for the last 39 years. I have from time to time saw a MC Factory Engineer sporting around in some new swag but this was a first for a Semi Famous Boat.

That's cool to see! We boat on Norris or Melton Hill, and like you sometimes see a factory toy, but not the pro tour boat, unless ABC has some event and they get to show it off.

Also good to see it with a tube! My kids give me grief for putting ours on top, but I hate having it on back (actually hate takin it period)

DBrown2
08-05-2013, 05:01 PM
MCVols... My whole point of the pic was to show off the Tube action. I probably should have posted it in the general, but since it was specific to my thread on Watts Bar it made since.

Again I was stunned at seeing it... To me it was like a Movie Star if you will, my wife didnt believe me until I showed her the MC Instagram posts. Then she saw someone holding a Video Camera... so she believed me. Had I been in my X Star I would have pulled over and chatted them up.

The engineer guy I see often at Sand Island, he is always riding in some Top Secret ride or some ride with a Huge Power Plant that isnt factory spec.
