We left and launched around 4:30, no wind then and it came up real quick as we were leaving. It wasnt much fun trying to load with foot high white caps!!

Your boat looks like it is great shape, the new ones with bling have nothing on it

We go to most of the local lakes except Chilliwack and Cultus lake. There are some great spots along the Fraser River all the way up to Pitt Lake but we mostly ski in Ladner and Deas Slough.

i learned to ski in ladner years ago , i skiied behind an old blue 16ft zodiac in ladner for years if you ever happen to see it . I didn't hit the slough that much but did hang out around the corner skiing around that little island and hanging out at that little sandy beach quite a bit
nice pic of the slough , i would never ski at Cultas , the fraser is one of my favourites also
just for fun one day we skied under all the bridges . ALex fraser ,Pattullo Bridge ,and Port Mann ,then headed on to pitt. skied by the the floating casino in new west and people thought we where nuts. cheers Jake

We like Gull because we can camp there as well in the Provincial Park and use the launch. The public launch is a zoo on weekends. It's a shallow lake so you have to know where the reefs are. The pic above was taken about 200 yards off shore and I'm standing in the water taking the picture! Once you get away from the south end which is the busiest we usually can find some nice water to ski or board. Because the prevailing wind is typically from the W or NW we usually hang out along the west shore.

Aren't you afraid of hitting a stray floating log or something? Every time I'm in Vancouver and cross one of the bridges there always seems to be something floating down stream. It would be hard to see I would think because the water is pretty murky.
