anyone dig there own lake?

i have been toying with the idea of selling my house and buying some land to build a lake for awhile now. doesnt look good since the cost and availibilty of land where i live. i have howvever been searching more and more lately and have become a little more serious. i am not i a big hurry although the longer i wait the harder and more expensive it will get. i dont want to run a club or sell memberships . maybe grow fish. i would like to subdivide to at least one other person but no more than 3.anyone on this board do it and have any stories or advice to share?

I would love to do this and am searching the newspaper each week for land. Would like to but 30-50 acres which you can get for 1-3k/acre still out from the city.

Attached is a design I did for myself earlier after reading a lot of stuff on the matter.

Radar Lake in Bellingham, WA, home of the Hyperlite team, is a man-made lake. The edges of the lake are gently sloped which absorbs (does not reflect) the boat wakes.

I have been thinking about that for a while too.Pass one today,1875 feet,kind of short,but a real nice place.The guy also built a really big house on the lakefront and he is all by himself.In my neighborhood i can buy 75 acres for about 80 000 $ CDN.
I also have this skiing partner who just built a big cottage on our lake and own a big excavation company.I'm really nice to him...LOL

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
