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.

We are not allowed to release Carp anywhere here in OZ. I did stock my other lake with Silver Perch and Australian Bass and they keep it somewhat clean. Nothing like Carp will though. Only benefit is they are excellent eating fish. Gives you something to do on the crappy days, go fishing!

ETS, by the time it takes for the trees to grow big enough to block wind his grand kids will be skiing and we all will be in nursing homes.

I'm sure in his climate he can find some fast growing trees to take advantage of pretty quick. Such as the Leyland Cypress. Taken from http://www.savatree.com/leyland-cypress.html - The Leyland Cypress tree is a stately, pyramid-shaped evergreen. It has a rapid growth rate (3 feet or more per year) and dense structure, making it ideal for use in privacy screens, windbreaks and hedges, and is used for Christmas tree production in some parts of the country

eucalypts (gum trees) grow fairly quickly as well as wattles. My friend has a lake and has trees 15-20' after 6 years or so.

I was thinking about some logistics. You guys will have more thoughts. The trees are a must for wind, erosion and shade. Where to put the ramp? Deeper at the ends to avoid churning the bottom on turns and starts? Vegetation by the shore can help with rollers and defend against erosion. Look for marginal plants that grow well with "wet feet". I learned that mint is really happy by the edge of a pond, and is excellent for Mojitos too.

Just letting you guys know I haven't given up on my lake. It touched freezing here a couple of times in the last few weeks. Had about 3 inches of rain over the last month and I am envious of you guys in the middle of your ski season. cheers
